About Henderson Chambers
Henderson Chambers is a long-established, leading commercial/common law set. It has acknowledged expertise in all of its principal areas of practice, and pupils and members are frequently involved in high-profile commercial and common law litigation.
Much of our work has an international dimension to it and over the last decade, Chambers has been involved in many of the major commercial and landmark International Group Actions. We are ranked in the top tier by both Chambers and Partners and Legal 500 and are the holders of awards in many of our practice areas.
Our Junior Tenants operate in an extraordinary diverse array of areas of practice. They switch between running their own cases and from being team players, being led by silks, in massive pieces of litigation. They are expected to develop and market their own careers from the outset.
Pupils undertake four seats with four top barristers and have the opportunity to see international commercial litigation in action. The second six is defined by real advocacy as pupils get to their feet in court and undertake a month’s external secondment at an international legal practice in order to experience practice in another jurisdiction, at first hand.
Chambers offers up to two funded 12-month pupillages a year. Pupils receive a minimum remuneration of £70,000. This consists of a guaranteed award of £70,000, plus any additional earnings during the second six months.
“Henderson Chambers offers a commercially minded common law Pupillage that presses the fast forward button on court experience and turns out down-to-earth advocates with broad experience. Highly recommended.” Chambers Student Guide.
