Lucy Waterstone


During her first six months of pupillage, Lucy was supervised by Sean Sullivan and Will Noble. Lucy assisted in the preparation of both prosecution and defence matters involving sexual offences, violent offences and modern slavery.

Prior to pupillage, Lucy worked for a law firm specialising in prison, mental health and human rights law. She represented clients in Parole Boards and Independent Adjudications, and instigated judicial reviews and criminal appeals. She represented clients with highly complex needs, including youths, foreign nationals, clients with mental health difficulties and high-risk offenders. She has also spent time in Moria Refugee camp, Lesvos, where she assisted asylum-seekers in their applications for refugee status.

Whilst studying for the GDL, Lucy was the highest scoring individual in the UH/Blackstone’s National Criminal Advocacy Competition, which took the form of a mock criminal trial. She is a Lord Denning Scholar at Lincoln’s Inn and an Advocacy Scholar at BPP Law School.

Before embarking on her legal career, Lucy had spent time volunteering for NGOs whilst living and working in Latin America.
