16/01/2013 - Brick Court Chambers Student Open Day
18th March 2013
Following the success of our previous Open Days, we are again offering students the opportunity to learn more about Brick Court Chambers. We hope that the day will give those attending a short but real insight into life at the Bar.
Brick Court is a leading set of London Chambers which specialises in commercial, European and public law. Members of Chambers have been involved in many leading cases in the last few years, such as Berezovsky v Abramovich, SAAMCO, Buncefield, FA Premier League Ltd & Others v QC Leisure & Others (Murphy), Bank Charges, Factortame, and Jackson v Attorney General along with many others.
The Open Day, which this year is taking place in the Parliament Chamber, Inner Temple from approximately 10.30am to 2.30pm, is likely to involve:
• Presentations from members of Chambers and clerks about practice at the Bar;
• A visit to Brick Court Chambers;
• Tour of the Royal Courts of Justice;
• Opportunities to ask questions on an informal basis.
This Open Day will not constitute a mini-pupillage, but we hope that it may give you a good introduction to Brick Court Chambers and to the Bar more generally. In particular, we have in mind that it may not always be easy for students to obtain information about practising as a barrister, and that visiting a law fair can only ever provide a general introduction.
Unfortunately places are limited. If you are interested in attending, please send an email to Lyana Peniston (Mrs), Pupillage Manager, Brick Court Chambers, 7-8 Essex Street, London WC2R 3LD. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please attach a CV when applying so that we may have some idea of your interests, the courses you are taking etc.
We appreciate that those who attend may incur travel costs, and we will be happy to reimburse reasonable travel costs. If these are likely to exceed £40, please contact Lyana Peniston by 18 February 2013. All of these arrangements will be made through Lyana Peniston.
If there is any aspect of the Open Day that you would like to discuss further, please do not hesitate to telephone Lyana Peniston in Chambers. Her direct line is 020 7520 9881.
