Billy is a Senior Lecturer at the Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law. He is also a practising barrister at 9 Park Place Chambers, Cardiff (practising part-time outside academic semesters). Billy’s dual specialism as a lecturer and barrister enables him to teach students law and practice and to assist those students interested in a career in one of the legal professions.
Billy is also interested in writing academically and has had a book chapter recently published; it discusses the attempted use of public children law principles in paediatric cases such as those of Charlie Gard and Alfie Evans (available to view freely online [see Chapter 2]).
After call (2007), Billy undertook a common law pupillage at 9 Park Place Chambers and then became a tenant practising in all areas of law before specialising in family law. Billy conducts cases in all areas within that field. He practised full-time until 2015 and has practised part-time thereafter. Billy was recommended in the Bar Directory ‘Chambers and Partners UK’ in 2015 and 2016 and has appeared in reported cases such as:
