We are delighted to announce that Judge Ann Power-Forde SC has joined Doughty Street International as an associate tenant.
Judge Power-Forde has served as a judge at the European Court of Human Rights for over seven years. Ann made a significant contribution to the case law of the Court both as Judge Rapporteur in Chamber and Grand Chamber cases and through the writing of separate opinions. She was involved in some of the most high profile issues of our time – the legacy of the invasion of Iraq, the annexation of Crimea, the consequences of global terrorism, the refugee crisis in the Mediterranean, and the legacy of European genocide. She was a member of the Strasbourg Court in seminal cases, such as Al Skeini v the United Kingdom, Gäfgen v Germany and Tymoshenko vs Ukraine. Ann has been the sole dissenting voice on a number of occasions – primarily on points of principle and where humanitarian considerations were in issue. These opinions were either instrumental in changing the Court’s case law or the fate of the individuals concerned when their cases were subsequently referred to the Grand Chamber. Ann facilitates in judicial training seminars working with magistrates, prosecutors and advocates in the developing world. She has given many lectures and seminars throughout Europe, Africa, and the United States. To view a full profile please click here.
Ann Power-Forde will be closely engaged with the work of Doughty Street International.
