Doughty Street Chambers


Doughty Street Chambers was set up in 1990 by thirty independent-minded barristers, aiming to break the mould of traditional chambers by moving out of the Inns of Court and setting new standards of professionalism and excellence in the legal world. That desire for justice and excellence remains the driving force behind all that we do in Chambers today. Our aim is to provide an outstanding, accessible and sensitive service to a broad range of clients in accordance with our commitment to the promotion of human rights and civil liberties through the law. While at the forefront of many cutting-edge domestic and international human rights cases, and with several members of Chambers having rights of audience in jurisdictions around the world, we operate across a wide range of different areas of law.

We are committed to publicly funded casework and are available to undertake private and contractual casework, CFAs, Treasury Solicitor work, mediation, consultancy work, CPS work, as well as subsidised and pro bono work.
