Jack Felvus is a pupil barrister who started his pupillage at 3PB in October 2023. He has a particular interest in criminal law and public & regulatory cases, but is looking to develop experience across 3PB’s specialisms including in the areas of traditional chancery and property. Following the successful completion of his first six, Jack is now on his feet and available to take instructions in his own right, both to appear in court and on advisory matters.

He grew up in South Wales and received a First Class law degree from the University of South Wales. He took his LLM BTC at BPP Law School in Bristol and was awarded a Distinction. During Jack’s time on the Bar Course, he was the Bar Standards Board's national representative for BPP Law School, which involved providing feedback to the BSB on how BPP was delivering the Bar Course, and representing the views of students.

Prior to pupillage, Jack worked as a public law paralegal with case management responsibilities at a well-known law firm in Cardiff. Jack gained exposure to a vast range of public law work and gained an understanding of the principles and procedures governing public law claims. Examples of the work that Jack assisted with include:

  • Judicial review claims concerning the provision of suitable education, school exclusions, and public service closures
  • EHCP Appeals to the First-Tier Tribunal (SENDIST)
  • An application for permission to appeal to the Planning Court under s289 Town and Country Planning Act 1990
  • The Infected Blood Inquiry, by way of drafting a witness statement and reviewing disclosure
  • Article 2 Inquests

One of the most notable cases that Jack worked on was R (SO) v Thanet District Council and Others [2023] EWCA Civ 398. It concerned the construction of s77 Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994, and the requirement to give reasonable notice when withdrawing consent to occupy land. Jack co-authored an article on this case, which was published in the Solicitors Journal.

Before Jack’s paralegal work, he worked as a mediation assistant for an employment law charity based in London. He arranged pro-bono mediation for suitable workplace disputes, which involved liaising with members of the legal profession and ensuring a high quality of service for clients. During this time, Jack also successfully completed training on advocacy and drafting claims for the Employment Tribunal.

During his time at university, Jack worked as a casework volunteer for Advocate, and he currently volunteers for a legal education charity.
