Dr. David Herling
David Herling graduated in English Literature from New College, Oxford, where he went on to complete a doctorate on the years spent in Paris by the American poet Ezra Pound. After qualifying as a barrister (Gray’s Inn), he undertook pupillage at Blackstone Chambers, where his supervisors were Charles Flint, David Pannick and Tony Peto.
David has taught at City, University of London, for 25 years, specialising in Public Law, Contract, and Legal Ethics. He directed City’s GDL programme for 20 years, taking special responsibility for advising students heading towards the Bar. During that time, the number of City alumni in top sets at the Bar equalled or overtook those of any other university.
David has published on aspects of administrative law, both English and Israeli, and has an enduring interest in the styles and temperaments of individual judges.
Beyond law, David divides his time between a nationally recognised role in arboriculture, and his (very small) olive grove in Italy.
