Biography

Jon has been listed by the legal directories as a leading barrister in public law since 2005 and the latest edition of Chambers & Partners 'praises him for his creativity and pragmatism' and says 'he brings a fresh perspective and is extremely thorough'. Jon is a regular contributor to spiked and the New Law Journal where he writes about the politics of law. He was shortlisted for the Legal Journalism award 2014 organised by the legal publisher, Halsbury. Unusually for a lawyer, Jon argues for the expansion of lawyer-free zones and against the judicialisation of life. He would like to see: more common sense and fewer laws; more businessmen, scientists and teachers and fewer lawyers. He tweets for more humanity and less law @JonHolb.
