Carolyn Taylor shortlisted for Mental Health Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year 2016

The LALY’s are a celebration of exceptionally talented lawyers who dedicate their working lives to the most vulnerable in society, fighting for access to justice. TV Edwards are incredibly proud of our Carolyn Taylor, head of the specialist mental health team who has devoted her career to protecting the rights of client’s with mental illness, as well as representing mentally ill offenders within the criminal justice system. A group of clients who are least likely to be able to speak up for themselves; Carolyn’s achievements are extensive and frankly astonishing. Working as a mental health tribunal judge, an author, representing client’s at tribunals, on arrest from the police station to final hearing, reviewing draft legislation for the Law Society as well as being a mum!

Jane Pritchard head of Social Welfare at TV Edwards LLP said,
We wish Carolyn all the best at the ceremony on 7th July, being shortlisted in a field of such amazing talent must feel like winning! Carolyn continues to inspire the next generation of mental health lawyers, working with Carolyn in a privilege none of us take for granted”.
