The City Law School appoints leading London QC
The City Law School, City University London, is delighted to announce the appointment of financial crime expert Jonathan Fisher QC as an Honorary Visiting Professor.
Fisher, of Devereux Chambers, is one of the UK's leading barristers in his field and specialises in tax investigations and disputes, fraud, corporate defence and money laundering. He was called to the Bar in 1980 at Gray's Inn.
In the 2011 edition of key legal guide Chambers UK - A Client's Guide to the Bar, he is described as "a favourite of London's top firms [with] great gravitas when appearing in high-value cases where the stakes are high".
As an Honorary Visiting Professor, he will be involved in City's Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) and, in particular, with the new Fraud and Financial Crime option, which he played a key role in designing and which is now available to students on the course.
Fisher has a longstanding association with City University London and was previously a Visiting Professor in the Faculty of Finance at Cass Business School, where he taught the law of investor protection and financial services regulation to postgraduate students.
Commenting on his appointment, Jonathan Fisher said: "I am thrilled to resume my link with City University London and assist in the training of student barristers at The City Law School. The BPTC course, taught at the School's Gray's Inn campus, is an excellent one and offers student barristers many opportunities".
Peter Hungerford-Welch, Barrister and Assistant Dean for Professional Programmes at The City Law School, added: "I am delighted by Jonathan's well-deserved appointment. He brings with him a wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise and I have no doubt our talented students will benefit greatly from the guidance of a leading barrister of his calibre."
