Hamish McCallum

We are delighted to announce that Hamish McCallum has joined Garden Court North Chambers.

Hamish specialises in Protest Rights, Inquests & Public Inquiries, and Public Law. He has extensive experience acting on behalf of protestors, bereaved families and in actions against the government and state bodies. He has acted for many high-profile organisations in protest cases involving environmental issues, human rights, animal rights, and civil liberties.

He is currently instructed to defend in several high-profile and legally complex protest-related trials in the Crown Court and has, in recent years, acted (unled) in a six-week jury inquest concerning a police shooting.

On joining GCN, Hamish said: “I am thrilled to be joining GCN in order to continue growing my practice in Protest Rights, Public Law and Inquests and Public Inquiries. There has never been a more important time for the defence of our fundamental human rights, and I am honoured to join so many outstanding barristers in these fields at GCN.”
