Doctor in the set

John Malpas reports

A former doctor has made the transition to the Bar to join Devereux Chambers as a tenant. Dr Dijen Basu, who has just completed his pupillage at the set, is currently doing employment, personal injury and commercial work but hopes his medical background will help him to specialise successfully in medical negligence work. Dr Basu spent a year working as a junior hospital doctor before retraining as a barrister.
