11 Old and 11 New become ‘Radcliffe’

11 Old Square and 11 New Square will rename themselves Radcliffe Chambers when they merge on 5 June. The set is to be named after Sir Cyril Radcliffe, the first person to become a Law Lord without first being a High Court or Court of Appeal judge. Radcliffe was a former member of 11 New Square and was a tenant there when present head of chambers Hedley Martin joined the set.
