Church Court Chambers is a leading multi-disciplinary set with a proud reputation in Crime, Family, Employment, Immigration and Civil Law. Our Members, including five eminent Queen’s Counsel and 45 juniors, enjoy busy and varied practices; collectively they have an enviable back catalogue of high-profile and complex matters such as the Luton Slavery Trial, the Jimmy Savile Enquiry and The Marrache Fraud Case. Individually they are all highly regarded and respected by their peers and the judiciary.

We remain committed to recruiting the best and most able pupils offering a structured and effective transition between academia and practice. Chambers considers the development and expansion of Chambers as being inherently linked to our pupillage programme.
Applicants should demonstrate an interest in at least one of Chambers’ key practice areas, together with a willingness to engage with the broad spectrum of work available in Chambers. The focus of the 2018 pupillages shall be Crime, but with opportunities if the pupil so wishes in other areas.

We look for academic ability, outstanding advocacy skills, evidence of commitment to life at the independent Bar, and hallmarks of character which are reflective of not simply a Member of the Bar, but a barrister who wishes to become in due course a Member of Church Court Chambers.

Chambers is committed to equal opportunities and acts in accordance with the Bar Council’s Code of Conduct and the Equality Code for the Bar. We do not discriminate, or permit discrimination, by reference to sex, race, ethnic origin, national origin, nationality or citizenship, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, religion, political persuasion, disability or age.
