      Are you looking for a career which is challenging, stimulating, varied and well remunerated?

      Are you articulate, analytical, diligent and self-driven?

      A career at the Chancery Bar might be for you.

      Come and find out about this diverse area of law spanning a range of disciplines, from commercial and property disputes, to tax and inheritance disputes.

      Come and find out about the lives of the women who work at the Chancery Bar: meet junior and newly qualified female Chancery barristers and hear about their experiences, from the pupillage application process through to the establishment of their practices and day-to-day life in Chambers.

      Admission is free and open to all students, not just law students, but spaces are limited.
      Complete the booking form below
      Registration 2pm : Drinks reception 5.30pm

      The Chancery Bar Association believes that diversity within its ranks is in the public interest and in the interests of justice, not least because Chancery barristers of today are Chancery judges of tomorrow.

      There is anecdotal evidence that Chancery chambers recruit more male junior tenants than female junior tenants. We are concerned that this may be because excellent female candidates are not attracted to the Chancery Bar, despite it being a career in which women can and do flourish.  The event is therefore intended to spark the interest of female students, some of whom may not yet be thinking about a career at the Bar, and to encourage them to consider applying to the Chancery Bar.
