Public law barrister joins Landmark Chambers

Public law barrister Miranda Butler has joined Landmark Chambers’ 51-strong Public Law group.

A specialist in immigration, community care and public law, Butler has particular expertise in claims relating to unlawful detention, prisoners’ rights, trafficking, and asylum support.

Called to the Bar in 2013, she has a broad range of experience in public law and human rights issues and has appeared at both the UK Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights.

She previously worked as a judicial assistant to Lord Kerr JSC at the Supreme Court and as a stagiaire at the European Court of Human Rights.

Butler said: “I’m excited to be joining Landmark at such a time of growth for the Public Law group. I look forward to getting to know my colleagues and to continuing to advise and represent clients as part of a wide-ranging practice.”

Joint Heads of Landmark’s Public Law group, Fiona Scolding QC and Samantha Broadfoot QC, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Miranda to Chambers and the Public Law group in particular. Miranda is an excellent addition to our junior team and brings extensive experience and skills to the group. We look forward to supporting her as her practice continues to grow and develop.”
