Description of chambers
Hardwicke specialises in commercial, construction, insurance and property law. We also have expertise in professional negligence and personal injury work. We are a successful and innovative set with a reputation for not only high quality legal expertise but also our excellent administration and approachable, business-focussed style. This is consistently recognised in Chambers & Partners and Legal 500.
We offer two 12-month pupillages each year and recruit with the intention of taking on both pupils at the end of their time with us. Our policy is therefore only to offer pupillage to those candidates whom we consider have the potential to join us. We look for pupils with exceptional intellectual ability, good communication skills and a genuine interest in our areas of work. You need to be confident and able to work both on your own and with others, demonstrating not only legal, analytical ability but also commercial good sense.
We put a great deal of effort into providing you with the support and training necessary to succeed in an extremely competitive environment. We aim to make you feel part of the team from day one and have an open door policy so as to make our pupils feel able to approach any member of chambers for guidance and advice.
We choose to manage the application and selection process ourselves. Although we are not members of the Pupillage Gateway, the closing date for applications to Hardwicke is in line with the Pupillage Gateway timetable. Our application form is downloadable from our website.
