June Venters QC - Highly Commended

Law Society Excellence Awards 2018

June Venters QC was highly commended in the Solicitor Advocate of the Year category at the Law Society Excellence Awards 2018.

June said "The case behind this award is why I came into the law. It was about an individual who faced discrimination and injustice whilst at the same time facing his own human tragedy and vulnerability. It wasn’t about who was right or who was wrong, it was about fairness, tolerance and equality of arms. Until the court of appeal hearing the legal system had failed him and, in turn, his children. The lower court’s priority had been the speed of justice rather than enabling justice. In the words of a former High Court Judge it had done precisely what she had warned against which was that “justice must never be sacrificed upon the altar of speed.” The court of appeal remedied the situation and ordered a re trial. The outcome achieved was manifestly better than had been the plan prior to the appeal and meant two children were placed with the paternal family with regular ongoing contact to their father as opposed to remaining in social services care and no contact to their father.

Without the phenomenal team I had supporting me and in particular my instructing solicitor none of that would have been achieved.

This case demonstrates our legal system works and I am privileged to have been a part of it for so many years."
