We are delighted to announce that Alexander McColl has accepted the offer of tenancy at Garden Court North and he will start as a member of Chambers from the beginning of October after the successful completion of his pupillage.

On accepting tenancy, Alexander said: ‘I am very excited for the future at Garden Court North. It has truly been a privilege to be able to work with and learn from such experts and to be surrounded by people who are so deeply committed to access to justice and bringing meaning to people’s rights.’
