You must be able to demonstrate relevant experience, an understanding of the marketplace and have a clear strategy for growing and developing both your practice and your career.
As a third six pupil at 42 Bedford Row, you will be fully supervised and assessed, with a definite view to tenancy after six months. You will also develop a significant case load of your own and can expect to be going to court on your own cases regularly.

We are looking for third six pupils who have the potential to become outstanding barristers. We are keen to recruit bright, independently-minded people who are articulate, confident, and perceptive.
You should be keen to learn, have the ability to get on with people, and be able to demonstrate original thinking, common sense and good judgment. You should possess a minimum of a 2.1 degree not necessarily in law.
