Jasmine Harrison

Jasmine Harrison is regularly briefed by the CPS and solicitors across the North Eastern and Midlands Circuits. This work is supplemented by private prosecutions for the National Probation Service. 
Jasmine undertakes a broad range of criminal work, including first hearings, plea and case management hearings, sentencing and trials in the Magistrates and Youth Court. She has also represented South Yorkshire Police in a number of applications for warrants for further detention during murder investigations.

Significant Cases

R v M (2021) – Successfully prosecuted at a trial for a breach of a restraining order in the youth court, which involved careful and considered cross-examination of a vulnerable, young individual.

Jasmine Harrison works on a broad range of family law cases. She is regularly instructed by both applicants and respondents in private law proceedings, including applications for child arrangement orders, specific issues orders, non-molestation orders, prohibited steps orders and occupation orders. She has dealt with all aspects of such cases including directions hearings, contested fact-finding hearings and final hearings.

Significant Cases


J v S (2021) – Representation of a parent in a contested fact-finding hearing, the outcome of which, if unfavourable, would have affected a decision on whether contact with the child was appropriate.

Jasmine Harrison is regularly instructed to represent both claimants and defendants in small claims hearings in the County Court, including contested trials, quantum disputes and costs applications.

She also frequently acts on behalf of South Yorkshire Police in applications for closure orders and forfeiture applications.

What might influence the timescales of the services Jasmine offers?

Jasmine would normally expect to arrange a preliminary conference with your client within 7 days of first contact from you. After that, despite our best intentions, we can’t always control timescales or the amount of time we spend on a case. These can be affected by factors such as urgency; complexity; your own (or your client’s) availability; Jasmine’s availability and that of any third parties; the volume of documents she needs to review or must request; and the court’s availability.

Can you have confidence in Jasmine’s work?

She is regulated by the Bar Standards Board.
