Shekyena Marcelle-Brown, Laurence Harris and Christina Courquin accept offers of tenancy.


We are delighted to announce that Shekyena Marcelle Brown, Laurence Harris and Christina Courquin have accepted tenancy offers following the successful completion of their pupillages.

Shekyena regularly defends a broad range of offences such as violence, including domestic abuse, animal cruelty, road traffic, public order and weapons in the Crown, Magistrates and Youth Courts.

Shekyena also has extensive experience in Regulatory Law and Professional Discipline and has been instructed by the Nursing and Midwifery Council in complex hearings involving criminal convictions, lack of competence and serious allegations of professional misconduct including sexual misconduct.

Laurence has a thriving practice in the Crown, Magistrates’ and Youth Courts, and has a particular interest in fraud, corporate crime and financial regulation.

Christina accepts instructions across all Chambers’ practice areas with a principal focus on general crime. During pupillage, she has gained particular experience in representing vulnerable defendants in both the Crown and Magistrates’ Court.

Applications for Pupillage opened on the 4th January 2023 and will close on 8th February 2023. We intend to offer up to three pupillages to start in October 2024.
