Outer Temple Chambers’ public law team acts in relation to a broad range of public law work, but with particular emphasis on public law issues connected with Chambers’ other core substantive areas of work.
In line with that the team has particular expertise in the healthcare and social sectors, particularly undertaking work in the Court of Protection (and the High Court sitting in the COP jurisdiction), in relation to decisions about medical treatment, end-of-life decisions, community care, mental health law, education law and coroner’s inquests.
Members have been in several of the leading cases in the High Court in these areas in the last year or so. Already having several leading practitioners in these areas, Chambers is actively growing its work in these areas, in part thereby to enhance and complement the service it is able to offer its existing substantial client base in the healthcare/social/local authority fields.
