Darren is an elected member of the Family Law Bar Association and Chairs its Technology and Digitisation Committee.

During and since the pandemic, that training was provided across the Bar as a whole. Darren sits on a number of committees with senior members of HMCTS and the judiciary on matters relating to the digitisation of the courts and has written extensively on this topic, creating and delivering training packages to barristers, solicitors and the judiciary. Darren sits as a fee-paid judge in the Family Courts.

He has worked without “paper” bundles for approximately eight years and used computers extensively in his day-to-day practice since he was called in 2003. He operates exclusively with Apple devices and has lectured extensively on the use of technology in modern legal practice. Together with Darren Howe KC, he ran national training for the Family Law Bar Association before and during the pandemic when they discussed paperless practice with over a thousand family law barristers.
