Welcome to the Northern Circuit

Jennifer Devans-Tamakloe has concluded her term as Junior of the Circuit. The role is one which is vital and which requires a great deal of time devoted to it. Jennifer has performed her duties with diligence and charisma. I thank her for all her efforts and for her friendship.

And now we welcome Marie-Claire Gane to the role. She will serve two terms as the “Preston” Junior. She and I have already discussed plans for next term and we continue to try to make Mess an event that all will feel welcome at. I look forward to working with MCG!

The role of Junior is now selected by an application process which involves a written application, a marking scheme and a final round interview. The next Junior will revert to Liverpool, so all those that may be interested in the role please do speak to one of the recent incumbents to find out more.

Welcome to the Northern Circuit, a place of proud history, strong traditions, legal excellence and, importantly, overwhelming friendliness!

Stretching as it does from the Border City of Carlisle in Cumbria at its northernmost point, running through beautiful Lakeland to the port of Whitehaven in the West, on through Preston and Burnley in the heart of Lancashire to the great Northern powerhouses of Manchester, now regarded by many as England’s “second city”, and Liverpool, famous world-wide for its breathtaking waterfront over which Queen Elizabeth II Law Courts now keep watch, and most recently joined by the historic city of Chester and its surrounding county – the Northern Circuit remains at the forefront of legal development.
