Barristers at Colleton Chambers welcome two pupils to their number

This month two new pupils have joined Colleton Chambers for the final, essential, part of their training known as a pupillage. The pupils will spend twelve months in chambers undertaking the preparation of cases under the careful supervision of experienced and knowledgeable barristers in the set as well as learning from the advocates as they work. From next April, Anita and Herc will be undertaking cases in their own right.

Anita Noerr studied for a Law and German degree at Cardiff University before undertaking the Bar Professional Training Course in Bristol. Additionally she is a qualified Civil and Commercial Mediator and has a foundation degree in ‘Understanding Autistic Spectrum Disorder’. Anita worked in Investment Banking at Goldman Sachs in London for a year prior to doing the BPTC and has been a Legal Assistant for Kelcey & Hall (undertaking work on family and criminal cases). In her spare time she might be found on Dartmoor rock climbing or off the coast windsurfing.

Herc Ashworth studied law and for a Masters degree at Exeter. Since completing the Bar Vocational Course, he has worked closely on a professional negligence dispute concerning a new-build hospital in London’s Technology and Construction Court and represented clients in County Court hearings in the areas of property, landlord and tenant, contract, consumer credit, road traffic, insolvency and lender services. He has undergone civil and commercial mediation training and is looking to expand his legal practice with the Crime and Family teams. Herc is a lifelong surfer and keen explorer with his black Labrador.
