The role

I am looking for a junior barrister to work with me.  I practise in commercial and civil litigation and have done so for over 30 years.  As a junior barrister, you will work under my supervision.  

In this role, you will be doing mainly High Court litigation.  You will be involved from the early stages of proceedings through to their conclusion.  Your tasks will include preparation of documentary evidence, witness briefs and submissions, as well as legal research and appearances in Court.  


The candidate

The candidate will be a recent graduate or someone with up to 12 months of post-admission experience, more or less.

The position would suit a person who is happy and able to work long hours and who is independent, motivated and committed to producing high-quality work.  If you are strong academically and you are eager to learn and develop first class litigation skills, then this role will suit you.
