Brick Court Chambers Student Open Day - Wednesday 11 March 2020

05/02/20

Following the success of our previous Open Days, we are again offering university 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, Lowick Rose LLP v Swynson Ltd, Sainsbury’s v Mastercard, Bank Charges, Jackson v Attorney General, Constantin Medien v Ecclestone & Others, Rainy Sky, R (on the application of Gina Miller and Dos Santos) v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, Tobacco litigation and Isle of Wight Council v Platt, along with many others.

The Open Day, which this year is taking place in the Parliament Chamber, Middle Temple from approximately 10.30am to 2.30pm, is likely to involve:

  • Presentations from members of Chambers and clerks about practice at the Bar;
  • 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: lyana.peniston@brickcourt.co.uk. 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 £50, please contact Lyana Peniston by 24 February 2020.  All of these arrangements will be made through Lyana Peniston.
