Jack Gilliland is a highly regarded junior who is frequently instructed across a range of 2 Hare Court’s practice areas. His principal focus is criminal advocacy, inquests and inquiries, and professional discipline.

Jack prosecutes and defends a diversity of matters, from pre-charge through to trial, both led and as a junior alone. He was recently seconded to the Law Officers’ Department in Jersey where he provided pre-charge advice in respect of numerous criminal investigations, including in relation to attempted murder. In the civil sphere, Jack is routinely instructed to seek various orders, injunctions, and remedies on behalf of local authorities.

Jack successfully represents medical professionals and others at inquest hearings and before the major regulators. He has acted at all stages of fitness to practise including in cases where dishonesty and/or sexual misconduct has been alleged. In a recent case, Jack persuaded a fitness to practise panel to recuse themselves following the inadvertent disclosure to them, by the regulator, of material which was highly prejudicial to the registrant.

Jack is currently instructed as junior counsel to the Independent Inquiry relating to Afghanistan.

Before coming to the Bar, Jack served for six years in the British Army when, following training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, he was commissioned into the Intelligence Corps.
