Wednesday 8th December 2010
Following the success of our previous Open Days, we are again offering students the opportunity to spend some time at 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/competition and public law, including human rights. Members of Chambers have been involved in many leading cases in these fields, such as SAAMCO, Buncefield, Bank Charges, Factortame, and Jackson v Attorney General along with many others.
The Open Day, which will take place from approximately 10.30am to 2.30pm, will involve:
Presentations from various members of Chambers and clerks about practice at the Bar, and the pupillage process;
Opportunities to ask questions on an informal basis;
Tour of the Royal Courts of Justice.
This Open Day will not constitute a mini-pupillage, but we hope that it will 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.
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. Although places are offered on a first come, first served basis, 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 1st November 2010. 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.
