No5 Barristers’ Chambers is one of the largest sets in the country. We have developed a reputation for breaking new ground and for being a forward-thinking set. We invite applications from established practitioners to join the following groups to meet an increasing volume of work nationwide:

  • Crime (especially at CPS levels 2 and 4 (following successful appointments to silk and to the bench));
  • Planning and Environment (especially from those under 5 years’ call and those seeking a third-six pupillage);
  • Clinical Negligence (especially from those under 10 years’ call and those seeking a third-six pupillage);
  • Family;
  • Personal Injury (especially from those under 10 years’ call and those seeking a third-six pupillage);
  • Public Law (especially to assist (based in any of our offices) with an excess of Court of Protection work, education matters and community and social care judicial reviews).

Application Details

Please note that we do not usually consider applications from practitioners who have completed a 12-month pupillage but have yet to be taken on as a tenant in their present chambers. There are times when we will have a need for junior practitioners and when this occurs, we will run a specific, advertised recruitment process for such a vacancy.

Any application for a tenancy from established practitioners would be assisted by a CV which included the following:

  • Details of your main areas of existing practice and who instructs you in these areas;
  • Names of solicitors or other referrers of work who we are able to approach in confidence to obtain a reference;
  • An indication of the areas where you would wish your practice to develop and how you would propose to develop your practice in those areas.

Please apply in strictest confidence with a full CV to our head of recruitment Harpreet Sandhu at the address below, or by email via [email protected]
