Tuesday 04 March 2014
Three Kingston University Law School graduates have been appointed to the position of Queen's Counsel (QC). The Royal appointment is only awarded to approximately 100 people each year for outstanding work in the field.
Law LLB(Hons) Graduates Felicity Gerry QC, Charles Hale QC and Leslie Thomas QC are eminent barristers specialising in different areas of law. As QCs, they will be entitled to wear silk robes in court, and it is from this tradition that QCs are often called ‘silks'. The appointments are made by Her Majesty the Queen on the advice of the Lord Chancellor, following consideration by the independent Queen's Counsel Selection Panel.
