Described by the Legal 500 as ‘a go-to set’ for Chancery and commercial work,” Radcliffe Chambers is a modern set of chambers based in Lincoln’s Inn. We have 53 barristers, including 5 QCs, with many recommendations in the current editions of Chambers and Partners and The Legal 500 directories. 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.

We have previously been recognised as Client Service Set of the Year at the Chambers and Partners Bar Awards and in 2016 so far were shortlisted for Chambers of the year at The Lawyer awards, Solicitors Journal awards, Chambers Innovation at legal Week Innovation Awards and STEP Private Client Awards.

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. 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 for one pupil every year, we occasionally look to recruit a third six pupil who has not been offered tenancy at a top ranked set. A third six pupillage is offered with a view to tenancy. An award is given during the third six pupillage as well as earnings. Chambers invites applications for third six pupillages to commence in September/October 2016.

Applications should be submitted by 29th July.

Interviews will take place as soon as possible and offers may be made prior to that date. Please send a covering letter and curriculum vitae along with two references to pupillage@radcliffechambers.com. The covering letter should briefly address the selection criteria as set out on our pupillage page and should be a maximum of 2 sides of A4 in length. Applications will be considered as they are made.
