hThe Bar Council describes Nigel Hamilton QC's sexual harassment of a client and a solicitor's clerk as a serious breach of its code. But the barrister and part-time judge's three month suspension from practising at the Bar has been described as too short by the Association of Women Barristers. In what is believed to be the first case of its kind, Hamilton, of St John Chambers, Bristol, was found guilty of sexual harassment at an Inns of Court disciplinary tribunal. Hamilton, who was called to Inner Temple in 1965 and awarded silk in 1981, is also an assistant recorder on the Western Circuit. His position is being reviewed by the Lord Chancellor.
