We have 51 barristers, including 4 QCs, with many recommendations in the current editions of Chambers and Partners and The Legal 500 directories. Our members undertake a wide range of 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 4 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. Selection Criteria We are looking for applicants who can demonstrate the following: - A strong academic record. You should possess at least a good 2:1 degree (although this does not need to be in law) and should highlight any awards or prizes you may have obtained. - Evidence of legal experience (such as mini-pupillages, marshalling and other legal work experience). - Experience and achievements in oral advocacy (particularly legal advocacy including mooting). - Strong and convincing reasons for applying for pupillage, and in particular for wishing to join Radcliffe Chambers.
