Described by the Legal 500 as “‘a go-to set’ for traditional Chancery and commercial work,” Radcliffe Chambers is a modern set of chambers based in Lincoln’s Inn. We have 55 barristers, including five QCs, with many recommendations in the current editions of Chambers and Partners and The Legal 500 directories. We have won Chambers of the Year 2016 at the recent STEP Private Client Awards; Chambers of the Year 2016 at both the British Legal Awards and at the Halsbury Legal Awards and have been shortlisted by Legal 500 UK for Private Client Set of the Year. The achievements of individual members have been recognised in recent years in the STEP Private Client Awards, The Lawyer Awards and The Lawyer’s Hot 100.
Our members undertake a wide range of traditional Chancery and commercial work and we aim to give our pupils as much exposure to our different practice areas as possible. During your pupillage, you will sit with four different supervisors across different practice areas and you will also work with a number of other members, assisting them with their cases. From attending court with our QCs to writing opinions and drafting documents in a wide range of matters, you will experience the full spectrum of life at the Chancery Bar.
We also have a long-established reputation as a friendly and welcoming Chambers, and while we expect your work to be of the highest quality, members are always willing to share the benefit of their legal knowledge and experience.
In addition to recruiting up to two pupils, we occasionally look to recruit a third six pupil who has not been offered tenancy at a top ranked set but this is dependent upon the business needs of Chambers at the time. A third six pupillage is offered with a view to tenancy. An award is given during the third six pupillage as well as earnings.
Please send a covering letter and curriculum vitae along with two references to firstname.lastname@example.org. The covering letter should briefly address the selection criteria as set out on our pupillage page and should be a maximum of two sides of A4 in length. Applications will be considered as they are made.
