Who We Are

Crown Office Chambers is a leading civil and commercial set widely recognised as a market leader with a reputation for combining high-quality advice and advocacy with a modern, flexible and commercially-minded approach. Specialist, experienced and innovative clerking teams assist highly-rated silks and juniors providing an efficient, high-quality service for professional and lay clients. Chambers has 105 members, including 26 silks. We provide high calibre individuals and teams of counsel across all our core areas of practice.

Type of work

A wide range of common law and commercial work, with particular emphasis on construction, property damage, commercial disputes, insurance and reinsurance, personal injury, health and safety, product liability, professional negligence and clinical negligence.

Who Should Apply

We combine a rigorous, astute and business-oriented approach to our client work with an open and collaborative approach with our colleagues. We look for the same in our pupils, all of whom are regarded as having strong tenancy potential. We look for the motivation, dedication and intelligence which are the hallmarks of a first-class barrister. Academically, we look for a first or upper second-class honours degree (not necessarily in law) and a flair for the oral and written presentation of complex legal arguments. You will be expected to work hard and to show strong commitment to your work as an integral part of a supportive and friendly chambers.

We encourage applications from underrepresented groups, including women, those from black or other ethnic minority backgrounds, those with disabilities, LGBTQ+ people and those from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds. Applications for pupillage are assessed and determined solely on merit.

Pupillage programme

Our pupils sit with two pupil supervisors in their first six months and one in their second. You will also work with a number of other members of chambers practising in different fields of work over the course of the year. You appear in court regularly during your second six, generally handling applications and small trials in the county courts. This gives ample opportunity to develop your advocacy skills. Chambers also organises a series of advocacy training sessions including senior barristers and judges.
