Emma Kelly to be Appointed a District Judge

St Philips Chambers is delighted to announce that The Queen has appointed Emma Kelly to be a District Judge on the advice of the Lord Chancellor, the Right Honourable Chris Grayling MP.

Property specialist Emma has enjoyed a highly successful career at the Birmingham Bar and will be missed by Chambers and clients alike. She was called to the Bar in 1997 and had been appointed as a Deputy District Judge in 2010. She will be formally sworn-in on Monday 23rd March 2015, following which she will begin the next phase of her career as District Judge Emma Kelly, based at Birmingham Civil and Family Justice Centre.

Joe Wilson said: “I would like to congratulate Emma on her appointment although she will be a loss to chambers and our commercial group in particular”.  All members, clerks and staff wish her every success and best wishes for the future.
