Amanda Pinto QC, Chair of the Bar, said:

“The role of Attorney General, as the chief legal adviser to the government, is hugely important. We are grateful to Geoffrey Cox QC MP for his work whilst Attorney General. He has been a staunch supporter of the rule of law, including encouraging an integrated approach across government to the justice system, recognising the value of those working in criminal justice and conducting vital work on disclosure. He has been a great supporter of the Bar. We congratulate Suella Braverman MP and look forward to working with her and the Lord Chancellor, Robert Buckland QC MP on ensuring access to justice and protecting the rule of law."
