Stable Director Nick Ellis QC said: “In the 21st Century no lawyer can ignore the issue of Human Rights. The impact of the legislation across any number of areas of legal practice is considerable, raising at times complex issues of interference with individuals’ rights, be they to do with protection of private life, or protection from unlawful discrimination. We are delighted the Commission has recognised the ability of our members in their appointment of Adrian, Juliet, Alice and David to their Panel. It demonstrates the range of expertise our members can provide to clients and instructing solicitors.”
