Biography

Jeremy was called to the Bar under the exceptional route for academics of experience and distinction having taught at the Universities of Birmingham, Cambridge, Mauritius and Stockholm, as well as the Central European University in Budapest.

He joined Chambers in 2006 and accepts instructions in the areas of Human Rights, International Law and Public Law. Jeremy has extensive knowledge of the requirements of the European Convention on Human Rights and of a wide range of other regional and international norms and mechanisms in the field of human rights.

He has been particularly involved in matters relating to criminal procedure, elections, extradition, fair trials, freedom of assembly, association, expression and movement and the protection of property rights. His experience in applying human rights and international law has involved looking at problems from a wide range of perspectives, not only governmental and non-governmental but also those of supervisory bodies.
