Richard was asked to give a lecture to Immigration Enforcement officers last week about case preparation and disclosure.

He delivered it in The Keys, which is often referred to as London’s secret pub, as it is a club in an exclusive area of the Tower of London complex that is only accessible to Beefeaters and their guests.

Richard said:

“Westgate Chambers are happy to undertake outreach to a whole range of organisations where we have particular specialist knowledge of an area of law.  This is shown by our recent events, involving many members of chambers giving some very informative and well-received talks.  Do not hesitate to contact Sean Gould or Stuart Taylor if you think we can assist you in this regard.”

We understand that Richard was eventually released from the Tower, and he still has his head attached.
