We are a leading civil law set, regularly rated in the top 20 sets in England. We are particularly well known for our expertise in public law and human rights (we run the popular UK Human Rights Blog and LawPod UK), as well as medical law (including clinical negligence), professional disciplinary, tax, and environmental work. Indicators of excellence are the high number of our Members on the Attorney General’s Panels, the number of QCs (26, including 6 female silks) and the number of former Members now in the senior judiciary.
We have a vacancy for one third six pupil. This will be a funded pupillage with an award of £27,500 paid on a guaranteed earnings basis starting in October 2019. Applications will be considered until the closing date at 4pm on Tuesday, 9th July.
Please address by email a covering letter, a full CV and any open references already available to David Hart QC and Alasdair Henderson who will lead the selection process. Candidates should also ask pupil supervisors and other referees to send closed references (which are preferred) to David and Alasdair, by the deadline of 4pm, 9th July.
Short-listed candidates should expect to be called for interview by email at very short notice (probably on 11th July) and should provide their mobile phone numbers on their applications.
We recruit in accordance with the principles set out in our equality and diversity policy and all applications will be treated in the strictest confidence. Full details of that policy and our pupillage policy are available on our website.
