Chambers follows the General Council of the Bar’s pupillage advertising policy. Any vacancies will be advertised on the Pupillage Gateway website.

The members of Chambers are committed to the furtherance of equality and diversity and promoting access to the legal profession and to the bar in particular.

Chambers is committed to the implementation and promotion of equal opportunities and to ensuring an absence of direct or indirect discrimination on grounds of race, colour, ethnic or national origin, nationality, citizenship, age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, religion or political persuasion.

Chambers offers a well-established pupillage programme which aims to develop the key skills required to succeed at the Bar. This commitment to our pupils is reflected in the structure of pupillage. Chambers also prides itself on providing pupils with a safe, friendly and constructive environment in which to learn and begin their practices.

Chambers welcomes applications from candidates from all backgrounds and all sectors of the community. Candidates for pupillage and for tenancy are assessed solely on the grounds of merit.

Chambers are always interested in considering applications from practitioners at all levels of call.
Counsel wanting to make application for tenancy should in the first instance write to Mr David Bennett enclosing an up to date CV, or speak in confidence with the Senior Clerk.

Chambers is instructed in all types of inquests and inquiries

Our Chambers Members specialise in representing properly interested persons and core participants throughout every stage of the inquest and inquiry process. We also advise on potential civil claims for damages and judicial review challenges to inquest and inquiry rulings or conclusions.

The cases undertaken by our Chambers Members encompass all aspects of coronial law with Chambers Members advising and representing statutory bodies, individuals, bereaved families, and corporate entities in cases covering a vast range of complex legal and factual issues.

This wide expertise of Chambers Members means that we are well placed to advise and represent parties and asking questions of witnesses through all stages of the civil litigation that can often follow an inquest.
