We welcome applications to join Chambers from established practitioners of proven excellence. Applicants should generally be able to demonstrate a high standard of achievement in areas of law which are similar or complementary to those in which existing members practise.
Applicants will be assessed by reference to legal ability, intellectual and analytical skills, oral and written advocacy, motivation and independence, teamwork and interpersonal skills, and integrity. They will need to show evidence of a successful and reasonably portable practice, which is likely to prove a good fit with the work done by existing members and accord with any plans which Chambers may have for expansion.
In the first instance applications should be made by sending a CV with covering letter to the Management Committee (FAO: The Chambers' Manager), 20 Essex Street, London WC2R 3AL. The Management Committee will aim to consider and respond to applications within 2 weeks of receipt. Applicants may subsequently be asked to provide references and to attend one or more interviews.
We appreciate the sensitivities that surround such applications and ensure that we deal with them in the strictest of confidence.
