St Philips is delighted to announce that Her Majesty the Queen has approved the appointment of Professor Jonathan Harris as Queen’s Counsel Honoris Causa.
Lord Chancellor Michael Gove said of the announcement: “Their appointments recognise the major contribution each has made to the law of England and Wales outside of practice in the courts, in some cases in careers spanning many years.”
Professor Jonathan Harris is an associate tenant barrister at St Philips and is Professor of International Commercial Law at King’s College, London. He was called to the Bar (Lincoln’s Inn) in 2006 and has been recommended for his work on private international law and in particular for having written the law in several jurisdictions on firewall trusts. He is joint general editor of Dicey, Morris and Collins, The Conflict of Laws and is also responsible for eleven chapters of the book. He is the author of a widely cited book on the Hague Trusts Convention and of a co-authored work on International Sale of Goods and the Conflict of Laws. He has also contributed to various major works and written numerous influential articles. He is the co-founder of the Journal of Private International Law and of the Studies in Private International Law book series. He is a member of the Lord Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Private International Law and has actively contributed to the Committee’s work. He has advised the Ministry of Justice on many occasions and, in particular, in negotiations on EU initiatives in the field of cross-border succession and wills.
