Our Members, including seven eminent Queen’s Counsel and 48 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.

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.
