Leading barristers' chambers specialising in planning, property, environment, public law and rating and valuation law.
Who We Are
Landmark is ranked as the number one planning, property and environmental Chambers in the UK by the top legal directories. We are consistently regarded as one of the leading sets in our other main areas of work and have consistently won Real Estate Set of the Year and Planning/Environmental Set of the Year at the Chambers UK Bar Awards. Members have been involved in some of the most significant cases and inquiries in recent years, including Crossrail and HS2, the third runway for Heathrow, the Supreme Court hearing on the prorogation of Parliament, the Supreme Court property cases General Motors UK Ltdv The Manchester Ship Canal Co Ltd and Peel Water Services Ltd and Regency Villas Title Ltd and others v Diamond Resorts (Europe) Ltd, the Infected Blood and Child Abuse Inquiries and the infringement of LGBTQ+ rights case Jones v AG Trinidad & Tobago.
We offer up to three London-based pupillages of twelve months duration each year and all applications for pupillage must be made through the Bar Council Gateway. Further information may be found on our Chambers’ website.
The pupillage year is divided into four seats of three months each, during which time we will encourage you to work for a cross-section of members and we will arrange for our Silks to act as your satellite supervisors on more complex cases. This will allow you to see a wide variety of work and take advantage of Landmark’s unique position as a leading specialist set, with significant overlap between its private and public law practices. In your second six months you will also be offered opportunities to appear in court of your own accord, usually in the County Court or First-Tier Tribunal.
We are committed to providing our pupils with high-quality and constructive training. To that end, you will receive regular feedback from your supervisors and, at the end of the first and third seats, you will be invited to participate in formal feedback sessions with the Chair and Secretaries of our Pupillage Committee.
