About Us:

1 Crown Office Row, the Chambers of Richard Booth QC, is recognised as one of the leading sets in the UK, particularly in the fields of civil and public law. Our commitment to excellence has led to an equally dedicated and diverse client base, which includes entrepreneurs, small businesses, large corporations, NGOs and local and central Government.

1 Crown Office Row has a stellar reputation for advocacy, court-craft, and specialist advisory work. Our barristers are known both for their forensic expertise and the versatility of their talent, which underpins all of their work. Matthew Phipps, our Senior Clerk, leads a dedicated team of Clerks who provide a top-drawer client service. We remain recommended by Chambers & Partners as one of the top twenty sets for client service. Legal 500 describe the clerking team as “definitely the benchmark for other sets” and “everyone at chambers from the tea ladies to the Head of Chambers is a pleasure to work with.”

Our barristers run the acclaimed UK Human Rights Blog, LawPod UK and Quarterly Medical Law Review (QMLR). They take on a large volume of pro bono work in addition to supporting non-profit organisations such as AvMA, APIL, the London Legal Trust, Advocate, Free Representation Unit, Personal Support Unit and many more.

Each year we take on two pupils, up to ten mini-pupils and, uniquely, up to thirteen assessed mini-pupils. In 2015 we were one of the first chambers to offer a mini-pupillage which welcomed students from non-traditional backgrounds as part of our ongoing effort to widen access to the Bar. Find out more about our inclusive mini-pupillage here.

This event will have captions and be recorded barring any technical mishap. Re-watch it on our website under ‘Careers’ after the event.
