Daniella Waddoup honoured with Rising Star in Youth Justice award

12.05.17 | |


At today's inaugural Youth Justice Legal Centre Youth Justice Summit, two stars in the field were recognised: 'established practitioner' Mark Ashford of TV Edwards, and 'Rising Star' Daniella Waddoup of Doughty Street Chambers.


Daniella was praised for her commitment to representing vulnerable young people; being on the Doughty Street team representing Just for Kids Law in the Supreme Court in the Jogee case; and for founding Project EPIC, which offers special educational needs advice to children in prison.  Presenting her with the award, Kate Aubrey-Johnson called her "fearless and compassionate" and a "hero" in the field.


The YJLC Youth Justice Champion Awards seek to recognise lawyers who are committed and passionate about youth justice. The two recipients of these Awards stand out as being dedicated and fearless in the representation of children and young people. Both recipients through their work have driven up standards in youth justice law and improved the protection of children's rights in the youth justice system.
