About Me

Angela is a specialist in public law, civil liberties and human rights. Her practice focuses on public law and civil claims with a human rights element.

She has recently represented the bereaved families of three victims in the Birmingham Pub Bombings inquests, a Chagossian exiled from his home as a child and a range of men, women and children challenging their treatment by public bodies including local authorities and individual police forces.  She has helped secure compensation for individual human rights violations in a range of settings, including for menstruating women treated without dignity in police cells, for children failed by local authorities and, in LL v Lord Chancellor, for a man committed to prison unlawfully.

She advises frequently on a range of specialist human rights matters, including on open justice, data protection and surveillance. She regularly advises a number of national publications on media law. 

Before joining Doughty Street, Angela was Director of Human Rights at JUSTICE, the UK branch of the International Commission of Jurists.  She has managed collaborative teams of both leading and junior counsel. 

Between 2006-2011, Angela was a legal adviser to the UK Parliament’s Joint Committee on Human Rights.  She advised on the legislation now central to her practice, including the Bills which would become the Coroners and Justice Act 2009 and the Defamation Act 2013.  She continues to advise individuals and organisations on the impact of new legislation and on law reform.

Angela is the general editor of Sweet and Maxwell’s loose-leaf Human Rights Practice.  She sits on the Legal and Policy Committee of Freedom from Torture and is a Trustee of Legal Action Group.  Between 2017-2019, Angela was Chair of the Human Rights Lawyers Association.
