We are proud to announce that Jenny is to become an Honorary Queens Counsel (QC Honoris Causa) commencing March 2021. She has been awarded this honour to reflect her enormous contribution to the fight for access to justice over the past two decades. Her work has contributed to improving the law and practice for victims of domestic abuse including the development of the Domestic Abuse Bill.
Jenny has a long history of working collaboratively with stakeholders across the legal and voluntary sectors to effect positive change in law and practice including acting as a trustee and advisor to a number of charities working to improve access to justice.
Jenny says “I co-founded Beck Fitzgerald to widen access to legal services and to become more involved in campaigning for reform. I am proud that my work has supported the protection and improvement of the legal aid system and has led to meaningful change so that those most marginalised can secure legal representation”.
Of the appointments the Lord Chancellor & Justice Secretary, Rt Hon Robert Buckland QC MP said:
“The award of QC is a tremendous achievement, made even more impressive against the additional challenges we have all faced this year. I want to congratulate all those on their forthcoming appointments and awards. The depth of expertise and eminence of these appointees is immense and is testament to the exceptional talent throughout our legal system.”
Jenny is also the private law representative on the Family Justice Council and sits on the Law Society’s Access to Justice and Family Law Committee and co-chairs the Legal Aid Practitioners Group.
