Jude Bunting crowned Human Rights and Public Law Junior of the Year at Chambers UK Bar Awards

We are delighted to announce Jude Bunting has won Human Rights and Public Law Junior of the Year at Chambers and Partners UK Bar Awards 2020!

Earlier this year Jude acted for Emily Hunt in the Court of Appeal, as part of her challenge to the Crown Prosecution Service’s decision not to prosecute a man who filmed her naked. The court ruled that doing so without consent is voyeurism.  That man has since been prosecuted and sentenced.  Emily’s inspiring campaign has been widely reported.

This is just one small example of the incredibly important and novel work that Jude undertakes.  In the last year, he has set important new precedents in protest lawopen justice, and on the rule of law in Northern Ireland.  He was the “lawyer of the week” in The Times and the “public law junior of the year” in the Legal 500 awards.  Feedback comments on how “Thoroughly impressive and detailed in his analysis” Jude is, and he is and if often described by clients as “extremely intelligent, and a phenomenal advocate.” His practice is multi-faceted, but entirely committed to access to justice. Jude is an expert in public law and media law and is undoubtedly the leading junior in cases involving open justice.”

The Chambers and Partners UK Bar Awards are based on research for the 2021 edition of Chambers Bar and reflect notable achievements over the past 12 months including outstanding work, impressive strategic growth and excellence in client service.

Huge congratulations to Jude from all of us at Doughty Street Chambers, thoroughly deserved.
