Monica Feria-Tinta appointed to prestigious Equality and Human Rights Commission Panel of Counsel

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has announced its list of preferred Counsel, instructed to support the Commission’s equality and human rights work through strategic public interest litigation in the UK and European courts, including the European Court of Human Rights and the European Court of Justice.

The Commission often intervenes, in both domestic and European courts, in cases of great public importance concerning Equality Act 2010 and human rights breaches.

Monica Feria-Tinta has been appointed to the B list of this prestigious Panel of Counsel. Counsel appointed to the B list are generally instructed where substantial knowledge and experience is required in litigation and advisory work. The appointment will run for four years.

The Commission stated that the appointments were made “following an open, robust and transparent competition.”

Monica is a specialist in public international law with extensive experience in human rights law including in regional and UN litigation, having been acknowledged for groundbreaking work in the field.

She brings to the Panel a wealth of expertise on extraterritorial application of the law, duty to investigate, right to life (Article 2), right to fair trial (Article 6 EHCR), prohibition of torture (Article 3 ECHR), right to privacy (Article 8), freedom of expression (Article 10), State responsibility, among others. Her litigation experience in the UK includes judicial review and a strong appellate practice arising from a variety of contexts, often raising complex human rights and international law issues. Monica is currently instructed in a landmark case before the Human Rights Committee. Her work has been described as a “stroke of genius” and she is recommended in The Legal 500 as a leading junior.
