About Queen Square Chambers
Our core practice areas are chancery, clinical negligence, commercial, crime, employment, family, personal injury and regulatory law. Our members predominantly represent firms and individuals in the South West and Wales, although some practices are truly national. We pride ourselves on being a friendly set with experience at all levels. Queen Square is committed to growing our membership from the ground up and so pupils are given every opportunity to advance with support. Queen Square Chambers offers two 12-month general common law pupillages commencing in October.
During pupillage you can expect to have 3 pupil supervisors each for a four-month period. Alongside the compulsory advocacy training, Chambers runs its own in-house advocacy programme to best prepare you for second six as well as comprehensive feedback on all written work. Once you start your second six you can expect a busy and varied diary in all areas of Chambers work. As well as Magistrates Court work, recent pupils have been instructed in Crown Court matters, Family proceedings, Fast Track trials and Employment Tribunals. New tenants have been able to build upon this platform of mixed work to forge successful practices, often exceeding the levels of their contemporaries in London. Chambers only offers pupillage with a view to tenancy and since 2012 has had 9 pupils, all of whom have been taken on as tenants. The tenancy decision is usually made within one month before the completion of pupillage.
