“Gray’s Inn’s toast is Domus, which means “home” and Gray’s is my professional family. The Inn has provided me with both professional support and fellowship. My friends from Bar School have become those for life. I’m immensely proud that Benchers and barristers make a real difference in giving their time to train aspiring students. When I was a pupil the then Master of Students, Mr Justice Auld, allowed me to be his Marshall in Bristol. This unforgettable experience further fuelled my determination to succeed at the Bar. The best part of being a Bencher is the privilege of participating in the magic of Call Night. Witnessing the pride of families as students are published barristers is a wonderful and rejuvenating experience. It’s the reward that makes it all worthwhile.”
