Nephew of the late Master Russell, Anthony shares with him all the latter’s affection for the traditions of the law in general and for the Inn in particular.  He has a passion for music both as a choral performer and listener.  After predominantly criminal practice in Manchester, he became a Circuit Judge in 2004, and Recorder of Preston in October 2005.  His election to the Bench means that the Middle Temple now has as Benchers the Recorders of Liverpool, Manchester and Preston. He has proved his commitment to the Inn by running, for many years, the Manchester Middle Temple Society.
