Public law in Regional Bar
30 Park Place Chambers is one of the leading chambers in Wales for public law matters. Members act on a wide range of judicial review cases, as well as undertaking advisory work for public bodies. Notable recent cases included one in which David Hughes represented the owner more than 50 sheep which were seized and sold by Forest of Dean Council, which unsuccessfully sought to rely on sections of the Town Police Clauses Act 1847, which allow sheep found "at large in any street" to suffer that fate.
Members of Civitas Law are instructed on a wide range of administrative law matters, acting for both government bodies and members of the public.
