Bar success for City alumni
Seven City University London alumni were named amongst the top ten young barristers in England and Wales in 2013.
A report by Legal Week, a leading law magazine, included them on the annual 'Stars at the Bar' list after a tight selection from more than 325 recommended junior barristers. Professor Carl Stychin, Dean of The City Law School, commented:
"It is tremendous to see our alumni achieving this level of recognition so early in their careers."
The City stars were Simon Atrill (BVC, 2005) of Fountain Court Chambers; Siddharth Dhar (BVC, 2005) and Amy Sander (BVC, 2006) of Essex Court Chambers; Charles Raffin (BVC, 2005) of Hardwicke Chambers; Luke Pearce (BVC 2007) of 20 Essex Street and the University of Oxford; Michael Watkins (PG Dip Professional Legal Skills, 2009) of One Essex Court; and Can Yeginsu (GDL, 2007) of 4 New Square.
