Irish lawyer Tara O’Leary has been appointed to the panel of counsel for Great Britain’s Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC).

Ms O’Leary, originally from Co Kerry, qualified as a barrister in England and Wales in 2014. She holds an LLB in law and European studies from the University of Limerick and an LLM in public international law from the London School of Economics (LSE).

The EHRC panel of counsel is a group of preferred suppliers of legal services who provide advice and representation to support the EHRC’s legal and enforcement work in British and European courts.

Ms O’Leary, who joins the B panel, is one of three lawyers at Cornerstone Barristers to be appointed to the panel.

“The appointments follow a highly competitive process and is testament to the strength of Cornerstone Barristers in public law work,” the chambers said.

“Our members regularly appear in high-profile cases of strategic importance before all courts. This includes judicial review, governmental and other inquiries, tribunal proceedings, disciplinary proceedings involving public bodies, and statutory appeal work.”
