Jack read German at St Hilda’s College, Oxford before returning to Nottingham to complete his GDL and BPTC.

Whilst at law school Jack won Nottinghamshire Law Society’s President’s Cup, the Taylor Prize for Best Overall Performance on the BPTC and the Richard Bagley Pro Bono Prize. Jack was later named ‘Volunteer of the Year: Rising Star’ in the East Midlands Charity Awards for his Pro Bono work at Nottingham Law School’s teaching law firm, NLS Legal, having secured over £780,000 for his clients, including over £110,000 recovered/defended specifically in employment cases.

Since joining Ropewalk, Jack has been keenly building a diverse practice in a number of Chambers’ different practice areas.

As well as regularly acting in personal injury cases, Jack also has also been instructed in clinical negligence matters as well as in varied High Court chancery work.

In addition, Jack has been instructed in inquest work, and welcomes instructions in this area.

Before joining Chambers, Jack spent time at a local authority working in civil litigation, environmental prosecutions and planning disputes. Jack has since received instructions on local government and planning work in Chambers, areas in which Jack has a developing interest.

Jack also previously worked as a Paralegal at Nottingham Law School’s teaching law firm, NLS Legal, where he built a strong employment practice including both Claimant and Respondent work. Jack appeared in the Employment Tribunal on varied cases, from Unfair Dismissal to TUPE disputes and claims involving multiple forms of alleged discrimination. Jack has represented in case management hearings and final hearings, including appearing before a three-member panel, and boasts a 100% success rate on the Tribunal hearings he conducted. Jack also successfully appeared in the firm’s first Judicial Mediation.

For his Pro Bono practice, Jack was named ‘Volunteer of the Year: Rising Star’ in the East Midlands Charity Awards 2020 and was awarded Nottingham Law School’s Richard Bagley Pro Bono Prize.

Whilst at law school, Jack received several awards and scholarships, including the Dean’s Scholarship for Academic Excellence and the Taylor Prize for Best Overall Performance on the BPTC. Jack also participated in and won a number of moots, and in 2019, Jack won the Nottinghamshire Law Society’s President’s Cup.

One of Jack’s more niche areas of interest is in ecclesiastical law, particularly in clergy discipline and the faculty jurisdiction. Jack is on the Dean of Arches’ list of advocates offering their services in ecclesiastical cases, and has previously delivered training in ecclesiastical procedure. Jack has previously been instructed to advise in work involving questions of canon law, and Jack looks forward to exploring this interest further alongside a dynamic and varied practice at Ropewalk.

Outside Chambers, Jack enjoys walks in the countryside, going to the theatre and travelling, having spent a year living and working in Germany.
