Join Us

Chambers is only as strong as the sum of our parts, and we place great emphasis on working with our barristers, clerks and support staff to help them reach their potential and achieve their goals.

Our recruitment process is rigorous but fair, and we are only too happy to invest in those people who share our values and have the potential to become excellent professionals.

We are proud of our record of success, as shown by our strong retention rates and our ability to attract leading junior and senior practitioners.

We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all backgrounds and are happy to make reasonable adjustments.

If you would like to discuss any opportunity with us, please contact Alister Williams in the first instance.

Contract and Professional Liability Panel

Contract and Professional Liability Panel

Pallant Chambers are seeking Associate and Full tenants to join our Civil team, in particular to work with us on our substantial lending contract and negligence workflow.

We are creating a panel of 20 barristers who we expect to receive numerous well remunerated privately funded advisory instructions on a weekly basis.

We are looking for exceptional barristers who have been in practice at least 2 years and are familiar with contract disputes and professional liability matters.

Associate tenants joining the team can expect 1 to 2 days’ work a week and competitive terms.

Full Tenants join a flourishing, well clerked and specialist team operating out of Southampton or Chichester, and would of course (if they wished) also be able to accept instructions in Chambers’ other main areas, namely, property, probate and trust disputes.

Please apply before 25th June 2018 by sending an email and brief practice CV to recruitment@pallantchambers.co.uk or awilliams@pallantchambers.co.uk or telephone Alister Wiiliams for more information.

 

 

 

Pupillage

Current opportunities

We have pupils starting in September and October 2018  and March and October 2019.

We have no current opportunities and expect to next advertise in June 2019.

Mini Pupillage

Undertaking a mini pupillage with us is a great opportunity for you to see our work and experience life in Chambers, and for us to get to know you.

What will I do?

We think that it is important that mini pupils have an active experience with us and we try and replicate life as a pupil as far as possible. You will accompany members of Chambers to court and other appointments, and will also consider papers and complete paperwork. We do not assess our mini pupils, but will provide feedback throughout your mini pupillage.

Who should apply?

Applicants for a mini pupillage should ordinarily have started a law degree or the law conversion course, although all applications will be considered.

How to apply?

If you would like to apply for a mini pupillage, please send your CV and a covering email to asedgwick@pallantchambers.co.uk

Third Six Pupillage

Chambers welcomes applications for third six pupillages from pupils who have completed a pupillage in one or more of our areas of expertise or who can otherwise demonstrate suitability.

Many Members of Chambers first came to us as third six pupils and have been able to build on the training and support we have provided to prosper.

Specific vacancies will be advertised from time to time, although speculative applications from strong applicants will always be considered.

Please contact Alister Williams in the first instance.

Tenancy

We offer an attractive and supportive environment to develop your practice, and in recent years we have recruited both silks and junior barristers from other leading sets.

We are always interested to hear from practitioners who specialise in our practice areas and who feel they can contribute to our success and who share our principles.

Tenants have the benefit of a highly recommended clerking team, established clients and have access to a well-resourced library including many online materials. Members can choose to be based in Chichester or Southampton, whilst we also support members who choose to work remotely.

Before applying, please contact Alister Williams for an informal, confidential discussion.

Any application will be considered by the recruitment committee and will be treated in the strictest confidence. If an application is of interest, we will contact the applicant to explain the next steps.

General Recruitment

Our success depends on our staff. We offer a fast-paced, challenging but friendly environment, and we are committed to supporting and developing our people.

Specific vacancies will be advertised.
