Two firsts for barristers’ chambers

Two firsts for barristers’ chambers image
Keen to promote their expertise in a slightly different way, we have enjoyed helping the barristers at Kings Chambers be the first to produce and publicise a series of podcasts.

To-date three podcasts have been planned, hosted, taped, edited and published. 

The first two feature a panel of construction and property development industry experts discussing topical issues affecting the sector, including the rise of garden villages and the revised NPPF regulations.

We’ve also helped the clinical negligence team with a podcast about a precedent-setting clinical negligence case involving a patient suing an NHS Trust A&E receptionist for giving him misleading information that indirectly led to an exacerbation of his injuries.

Podcasts are an engaging, accessible and convenient way of conveying expertise in a particular subject.  Because listeners can choose when to hear them – at their desk, in the gym, while travelling – they attract a lot of interest.

In another first at Kings Chambers, we were delighted to publicise the fact – both in the UK and Australia - that barrister Adam Aldred has become the first UK barrister allowed to practice foreign law in Australia.

This means that Adam, who specialises in competition law, is able to help Australian businesses and their solicitors with any issues they face that have a UK or EU element. You can read all about it here.
