Oliver Nunn has been appointed by the Lord Chief Justice as a Deputy District Judge, deploying him to the Midland Circuit.
He was called to the Bar in 2011 by the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn, of which he is a Hubert Greenland Scholar. Oliver completed pupillage in chambers in January 2016 and is also a Teaching Fellow at the University of Leicester.
Oliver’s busy civil practice in chambers, with a focus upon housing and commercial disputes, continues and will benefit from his experience on the bench. Oliver sits on the Pupillage Committee at KCH Garden Square and will also bring his expertise to bear on the training of new pupils and tenants in chambers.
“I am very fortunate indeed to have been supported in my career by my excellent colleagues, clerks and administrative staff at KCH Garden Square. I take the opportunity to thank them and my colleagues at Leicester Law School for their unwavering support, guidance and friendship.
Serving the interests of justice as a Judge is a significant privilege and responsibility. I am humbled by the trust which has been placed in me and shall endeavour to reward that trust with the fair and just disposal of the matters which come before me.
In serving as a Deputy District Judge, I shall keep in mind Sir Matthew Hale’s resolutions from the 17th century, as recounted in Lord Bingham’s excellent monograph on the Rule of Law, in particular: “That in the Administration of Justice, I am entrusted for God, the [Queen] and Country; and therefore, that it must be done, uprightly, deliberately, and resolutely.“
Tom Russell, Head of the Civil & Family Team at KCH Garden Square said “I’m delighted that colleagues and friends are furthering their professional growth.“
KCH Garden Square has a proud history of helping its members secure judicial appointments, of which Oliver’s is the latest.
