Landmark Chambers has announced Georgina Fenton as the chamber’s new tenant after the completion of her 12-month pupillage.
During her pupillage, Fenton undertook 12 months of virtual and in-person training across all of Landmark’s specialist areas, including planning, property, environmental and public law.
Prior to starting her pupillage, she was a judicial assistant in the Court of Appeal to Lord Justice Lindblom, assisting on a variety of planning cases.
Additionally, Fenton assisted with the writing of the judgment for the Heathrow Airport expansion case.
Landmark Chambers said this was “the first significant ruling in the world” on the Paris Climate Agreement.
Meanwhile, Fenton also volunteered with the Communities Empowerment Network, Reprieve and Citizens Advice, prior to and during her legal studies.
Carine Patry, head of Landmark’s Pupillage Committee, said: “We are delighted to welcome Georgina to the team. There’s no doubt that she will prove to be an excellent addition to chambers and, more importantly, to our clients who continue to expect and deserve the very highest standards of advocacy and advice from Landmark Chambers.
“We have all been incredibly impressed with Georgina’s resilience, especially given the unusual circumstances she has faced because of the Covid-19 pandemic. We look forward to supporting her as her career develops.”
