Jamal Jeffers


Jamal Jeffers is a practising Barrister at KCH Garden Square Chambers in Leicester & Nottingham, specialising in Family law, specifically Child protection matters.

Jamal was born and raised in Tottenham, North London. At 14 he moved with his family to Barbados and returned to the UK in 2007 to study at University.

Jamal completed his LLB at DeMontfort University in 2010 and went on to study the Bar Professional Training Course at Nottingham Law School, being called to the Bar in 2012 by the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn.

Jamal secured a pupillage at a set of chambers in Cambridgeshire in 2015. Prior to starting pupillage, Jamal worked at the Community Legal Advice Centre and the Citizens Advice Bureau in Leicester, providing advice and assistance to members of the community on a range of legal queries. The support offered was entirely free of charge to the public and was an invaluable service. Jamal left that post to work as a County Court Advocate dealing with civil matters such as mortgage possessions, low level road traffic accidents and bankruptcy petitions.

Jamal currently works in child protection matters where he represents parents, children and local authorities. Jamal’s work brings him in close contact with people who require significant support and assistance in navigating the often confusing and alienating court arena.

Jamal is passionate about improving access to the legal profession and seeing under represented groups thrive at the Bar, as a result he sits on the Midland Circuit Social Mobility Committee, is a founding member of Black Minority Ethnics (BME) @ The Bar, is the Assistant Junior to the Midland Circuit and provides mentorship to students at universities across the East Midlands.
