Life as a junior tenant

As a new tenant in Chambers, you can expect work similar to that which was undertaken in the second six months of pupillage.  However, the complexity and value of the cases in which you are instructed will increase rapidly.  New tenants can expect to be in Court several times per week, as well as to deal with all manner of paperwork.  Junior tenants may also be led by more senior members in larger and high-profile matters.

Junior members are encouraged to share a room for a period of time as this allows for further opportunities to gain tips on how to approach pieces of work, how to handle clients, and how to settle in to life at the Bar.

In the first full year of work, a junior tenant can expect to bill a sum commensurate with or in excess of other leading Sets.  Chambers also has a dedicated fees clerk whose role is to ensure the rapid collection of outstanding fees.  This enables the swift translation of billings into receipts.  Chambers adopts a flexible and pragmatic approach in trying to accommodate to any financial difficulties that a new tenant may have in the first few months of practice.
