Advocate:

A person who pleads their client’s case in a court of law.

One who speaks on behalf of another.

St Edmund Chambers supports the work of Cathy McCulloch, a highly effective and experienced Barrister with particular skill in acting in cases where any of the parties or witnesses are vulnerable or young.

She applies this skill in Public and Private Children Law, Public and Private Family Law (not divorce), and Criminal Law. She is in demand nationally, particularly in criminal cases relating to alleged sex offences. The 2016 “50 Shades of Grey” incest case is an example.

Cathy McCulloch applies the law with a clarity and passion which is both forceful and highly effective.

Chambers employs a dedicated clerk with considerable administrative experience. This ensures that Cathy McCulloch’s outstanding advocacy is backed up by thorough and meticulous administration. Miss McCulloch accepts Instruction throughout England and Wales both from Solicitors, and directly from the public.

She has an active interest in International Criminal Law, and is admitted to the List of Counsel before the International Criminal Court, the Rule 43 List of the UN Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals, and the List of Defence Counsel of the UN Special Tribunal for Lebanon as Lead Counsel.

Her advocacy is based on a strong set of values, qualities and skills. She accepts pro-bono instruction through the Suffolk Law Advice Centre.
