She was instructed on behalf a doctor facing proceedings arising out of a clinical trial into the relationship between cardiac defects and migraine headaches.

Most recently she represented a dentist at Fitness to Practise proceedings before the GDC concerning multiple allegations of substandard care.
Her experience also includes acting as junior counsel in a long running hearing concerning allegations made against a GP who had previously been tried in the criminal courts for sexual assault.
In addition to appearing in professional disciplinary tribunals she has appeared in the Magistrates’ and Crown Court on behalf of healthcare professionals facing criminal allegations arising out of their professional conduct.
During her second six months of pupillage Judith was appointed by the Council of the Inns of Court as a Clerk to the Bar Standards Board disciplinary tribunal. She continued in this role for seven years and has subsequently been instructed as counsel for the BSB in proceedings before the Visitors to the Inns of Court. She therefore has extensive knowledge and experience of professional conduct and disciplinary proceedings at the Bar.
