Ryan Ross (Third-Six Pupil)

Ryan Ross (Third-Six Pupil)

  • Called in 2019

Ryan was called to the Bar in 2019 and joined Chambers as a Third-Six Pupil in November 2020.

Ryan is building a practice across all of Chambers’ areas of practice. He appears remotely or in-person in Court/Tribunal regularly in a range of matters, including fast-track and small claims trials, as well as interim applications and preliminary/final hearings.

Ryan gained a broad range of experience during his 12-month pupillage across personal injury/clinical negligence, employment, regulatory (including professional discipline) and public law. His experience includes proceedings before the Supreme Court, High Court and regulators including the GMC and HCPC.

In the year before pupillage, Ryan worked for the Infected Blood Inquiry. He maintains an interest in public inquiries, and in July 2020 wrote for Counsel Magazine on the challenges facing any future inquiry into Covid-19 (see here).

Ryan comes to the Bar following an earlier career in academia where he taught undergraduate History. He was awarded his PhD in 2017 and was the recipient of various awards and scholarships as an undergraduate and postgraduate.
