Chloe Branton

Called 2019

Chloe took up her Tenancy with Parklane Plowden in September 2020 after successfully completing pupillage under the supervision of Louise McCallum. Chloe's main practice is in children law work, both public and private law. 

Chloe has experience representing a range of clients in public law proceedings, including Local Authorities, parents, and grandparents. She also represents parents, grandparents and guardians in private law applications including those under the Family Law Act 1996 as well as the Children Act 1989.

Chloe has developed an interest in cases involving orders to prevent and/or protect victims of forced marriage ('FMPOs') and FGM ('FGMPOs') as well as applications to remove parental responsibility. 

Chloe has delivered seminars and training for lawyers and social workers on topics such as FMPOs and FGMPOs and giving evidence in court. Chloe has also written articles on various topics such as secure accomodation and the vaccination of children in both public and private law proceedings. Following the success of their seminar on FGMPOs and FMPOs, Chloe and Louise McCallum's article on the topic was published in the Family Law Journal (June 2021). 

Prior to pupillage Chloe studied Law at Lancaster University, achieving first class honours, including 97.3% in  Family Law. Following her undergraduate degree, Chloe received scholarships from the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple to study the BPTC LLM, where she received a Distinction overall.

Whilst studying, Chloe undertook a variety of Pro Bono work including with the Yorkshire Tribunal Advocacy Project (YTAP) assisting clients with ESA and PIP appeals. She also provided written advice to clients through the Univeristy's Law Clinic. 

The summer before commencing pupillage Chloe spent as a Research Assistant working on the latest edition of Munkman and Exall on Damages. 

Chloe was selected in 2020 to be a Social Mobility Advocate for the Bar Council as part of their #IAmTheBar Campaign. Chloe participates in outreach events for people interested in a career at the Bar with the Inner Temple and the Bar Council. She is also part of the North Eastern Circuit's diversity group, and organised and spoke at diversity seminar on disabled lawyers.
