HHJ Probyn was called to the Bar in 1988, and built a successful family law practice in 4 Paper Buildings. She was appointed a Recorder in 2003, and a Circuit Judge in 2013. HHJ Probyn signed up as a Bar Council mentor because she believes it is important to encourage strong applicants who may lack the confidence without this opportunity to discuss their application, sit in proceedings, and talk through the role generally.

Also, HHJ Probyn feels it is important to ensure all candidates have access to appropriate professional networks to support them in their preparation, and throughout the competition application process for judicial appointment.
