Emma Sutton appointed to the Attorney General’s Panel of Special Advocates

Wed, 24 Jan 2018

No5 Barristers’ Chambers are delighted to announce that Emma Sutton, Deputy Head of the Public Law Group, has been appointed by the Attorney General, the Rt Hon Jeremy Wright QC MP, as a Special Advocate.

The role of the Special Advocate has developed in proceedings before a wide variety of forums where a party seeks to rely upon ‘closed’ evidence; and which may raise issues concerning national security. Special Advocates perform an important role by representing the interests of the excluded party in those hearings and subjecting the sensitive material to scrutiny, thereby promoting the fairness of the proceedings.

Emma Sutton is a member of the following groups at No5:

Public Law
Court of Protection
Education
Inquest, Public Inquiries and Coronial Law
