Attorney General’s Panel Appointment
Christina Michalos appointed to the A Panel
5RB are delighted to announce that Christina Michalos has been re-appointed to the Attorney General’s A Panel upon conclusion of her first 5 year term.
The Attorney General maintains 4 panels of junior counsel to undertake civil and EU work for all government departments. There are three panels (an A panel for senior juniors, a B panel for middle juniors, a C panel for junior juniors) and a regional panel. All government departments and agencies of government departments must use the panels. The application process is rigorous and highly competitive and work performance of those on already on the panel is monitored. Existing panel members are not automatically re-appointed or promoted to the next panel and must re-apply in open competition.
Christina was previously on the B Panel and before that the C Panel. In addition to media work and freedom of information/data protection, as part of her panel work she undertakes a wider variety of civil practice on behalf of the government including commercial work, high value personal injury cases and judicial review. This is a continuation of her earlier junior practice in broader civil and common law work.
5RB congratulates Christina on her appointment.
