'5 Stone Buildings continues to prove itself to be one of the most dynamic and prominent traditional chancery chambers around.'
Eliza joined 5 Stone Buildings in October 2016 following the successful completion of her pupillage. Her pupil supervisors were Sarah Haren, Ruth Hughes, Mark Baxter and Leon Sartin.
As a pupil, Eliza gained a wide exposure to the areas of Chambers’ expertise, including contentious probate, family provision, trusts, proprietary estoppel, professional negligence and the work of the Court of Protection.
Prior to pupillage, Eliza gained valuable insight into the workings of the county courts from the other side of the bench as an usher in the Oxford Combined Court Centre during her GDL. She experienced both civil trials and family law proceedings.
Eliza lived in Paris during the year-abroad component of her degree, teaching dancing to women living in a rehabilitation centre for mental health problems. She is fluent in written and spoken French and is happy to accept instructions which have a French element.
Eliza has co-presented a webinar with Sarah Haren on Ilott v Mitson for STEP. She contributes casenotes to the Elder Law Journal and headnotes to the Wills and Trusts Law Reports. Recent articles she has written include:
