Shamini Jayanatha news

Foundry Chambers are delighted to be able to congratulate Shamini Jayanathan on her appointment in the King’s Birthday Honours 2023 Overseas and International List to the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to the Rule of Law and to International Development.

This honour represents a formal recognition of Shamini’s outstanding work in these areas and follows Lexis Nexis naming her, earlier this year, as the Winner of the Halsbury Award for Rule of Law. Her citation for that award set out:

“The winner of this year's award has had a hugely impressive impact on the Rule of Law in multiple African countries, bringing the best elements of the criminal justice system in the UK to strengthen how trials and criminal prosecutions work elsewhere. It is so important that lawyers share expertise to places beyond their own boundaries and Shamini is an exemplar of this principle.”
