Strasbourg nominees


Three barristers have been named as the candidates competing to be the next UK judge at the European Court of Human Rights, after Paul Mahoney retires in September. They are Tim Eicke QC of Essex Court, Matrix’s Jessica Simor QC and Murray Hunt, legal adviser to Parliament’s Joint Committee on Human Rights. Members of the Council of Europe’s Parliamentary Assembly will select the successful candidate later this month.
