Bethany Baggaley


Bethany became a tenant in January 2024 following the successful completion of her pupillage.

Bethany completed her first-six under the supervision of Dominic Thomas, her second-six under the supervision of David Wood and her probationary tenancy under the supervision of Sheryl Nwosu.

Before commencing pupillage, Bethany acted as a caseworker within a public law firm assisting clients with community care and homelessness challenges against local authorities. She has considerable experience working with young and disabled clients. Bethany regularly prepared matters for the High Court, as well as bringing Judicial Review claims out-of-hours in order to secure urgent remedies for clients.

Prior to this, Bethany worked for Redthread, where she conducted youth violence support work and research from hospital sites. The charity has been successful in diverting young people from violent crime and embedding them in useful support networks. Bethany analysed London and nation-wide patterns of violence, exploitation and abuse. Bethany’s role incorporated advocacy and reporting, working with local safeguarding agencies and parliamentary groups as a charity representative.

Bethany has conducted research for the Human Rights Implementation Centre regarding torture prevention in prisons, and assisted the Coroner’s Court at an inquest. She has contributed to the Women’s Centre for Justice Sisters in Law blog.
