Type of work undertaken
12 King’s Bench Walk is an established set with 82 tenants including 11 silks. Members of chambers cover all aspects of contentious civil common law work. Pupils can expect to be exposed to a variety of work including personal injury (both domestic and international); employment; all aspects of professional negligence; landlord and tenant; and some commercial work, especially insurance related. Chambers is regularly instructed by leading solicitors and works for all the major insurers.
Chambers enjoys modern IT facilities including remote access, dedicated conference suite and friendly atmosphere.
Chambers is a member of the Pupillage Gateway.
Successful applicants usually have at least a 2.1 degree. We offer a minimum of two and up to three 12-month pupillages. Over the last three years, 6 out of 9 pupils have been offered tenancies. Pupils who have not become tenants have found chambers elsewhere, or have found employment with leading solicitors’ firms. Second six pupils (and junior tenants) can expect a busy and varied workload with plenty of court work.
Mini-pupillages are available. Please see our website for details.
Chambers is committed to the Equality and Diversity Code for the Bar and encourages applications from groups which are under-represented in chambers.
Chambers will make reasonable adjustments for disabled candidates.
