Pupils 2019 – 2020


Lauren Jones

Lauren was called to the Bar by the Inner Temple in July 2017 and joined Chambers as a pupil in October 2019.

During the first four months of her pupillage, Lauren will be under the supervision of Guy Watkins and she will gain experience in one of Chambers’ core practice areas, personal injury.

Before coming to the Bar, Lauren qualified as a solicitor at Mills & Reeve LLP. She then undertook the BPTC at the University of Law where she was graded as Outstanding in 11 out of 12 modules. She won five awards for her performance on the course including Best Overall BPTC Student.

Following the BPTC and prior to commencing pupillage, Lauren began working as a court advocate in her capacity as a solicitor. She carried out a wide range of hearings including: stage 3 MOJ disposals; fast track quantum disposals, small claims track trials, infant approval hearings and interim applications.

In her spare time Lauren enjoys cooking, theatre and, at times when she is able to escape England’s chilly climate, scuba diving.

Kamran Khan

Kamran was called to the Bar by Middle Temple in November 2018 and joined Chambers as a pupil in October 2019.

During the first four months of his pupillage, Kamran will be under the supervision of Carwyn Cox. He will gain experience in a wide range of both claimant and defendant personal injury and clinical negligence matters and will also undertake work in Chambers’ other core practice areas including employment law, credit hire and public inquests.

Prior to commencing pupillage, Kamran worked at a Magic Circle law firm. He was seconded to a major US investment bank, where he was responsible for negotiating with the Bank’s Southern European clients, a highly confidential, Brexit repapering project. Kamran is also committed to promoting access to the Bar. Over the last two years, he has held advocacy workshops at schools, spoken at education conferences and delivered legal career talks across the country to inform individuals about the various routes to the Bar.

During his studies, Kamran was a keen mooter. A highlight was reaching the Final of Middle Temple’s Rosamund Smith Mooting Competition, where he appeared before a Supreme Court panel comprising Lord Carnwath, Lord Hodge and Lord Lloyd-Jones.

Kamran enjoys nearly every sport that exists. Unfortunately, he is much better at watching than playing. He takes great pride in following the ups and downs of Liverpool FC. Kamran also loves travelling and going on long walks with his little West Highland Terrier, Alfie.
