The EWI Announce New Chair - Sir Anthony Hooper

The Expert Witness Institute appoints Sir Anthony Hooper as Chairman

The Expert Witness Institute is delighted to announce the appointment of its new Chair the Rt. Hon Sir Anthony Hooper. Sir Anthony will replace James Badenoch QC who stepped down on 5th June 2013 after nine years.

Sir Anthony has recently retired from the Court of Appeal of England and Wales to which he was appointed in 2004. Following a period as an academic in England and Canada, he practiced as a barrister in London specialising in criminal law and in 1995 he was appointed a High Court Judge.

Currently Sir Anthony is the inaugural Judicial Fellow of the Judicial Institute of University College, London and an honorary professor in the Law Faculty at University College, London.
More recently, he has been vocal in his criticism of the proposed legal aid cuts which are likely to adversely affect the legal profession and experts alike.

Sir Anthony says “I am delighted to have been appointed as Chair of EWI and I am very much looking forward to leading the Institute into its next phase of growth. It is a very interesting and challenging time for experts and I hope that my experience and knowledge can add to the already considerable strength of the Institute’s governing body”
