Nicola Murray

2015 Inner Temple

Nicola joined chambers in September 2017, having completed her pupillage under the supervision of Samantha Bowcock with a specific focus on family law.

Nicola has a busy practice acting in public law proceedings, where she represents local authorities, parents, and children. She regularly acts at all stages of the Court process, from initial hearings to contested final hearings in the Family Court and has also appeared in the High Court.

Nicola represents both applicants and respondents in private law proceedings relating to children and in applications made under the Family Law Act 1996. She has conducted fact-finding hearings involving allegations of serious domestic violence and emotional, physical, and sexual abuse of children.

Away from Court, Nicola can usually be found performing with a brass band somewhere in the North West of England.
