Justice award winners

Human rights barrister Edward Fitzgerald QC of Doughty Street Chambers was awarded the Justice award, sponsored by The Times, for outstanding contributions to criminal justice last week. Fitzgerald is known as an advocate for unpopular causes, including Myra Hindley. Fellow barrister Michael Grieve, who nominated Fitzgerald, said: "His only criteria is that it's a person who doesn't have the means to help themselves." Francesca Klug and the Kent Law Clinic also picked up awards.
