Description of chambers

11 Stone Buildings is a leading set of commercial and chancery barristers with specialist groups for all types of contract, company, insolvency, real estate and private client disputes. We act as advocates, advisers, arbitrators and mediators for law firms, counting many top legal firms among our clients; for in-house legal departments and for licensed and public access clients. We were shortlisted as ‘Chambers of the Year’ by Legal Week's British Legal Awards in 2012 and 2013.


Areas of work

In addition to our commercial and chancery work described above, we are also recognised for our expertise in the areas of civil fraud, IP, IT, banking, professional negligence and media & entertainment. A large number of our barristers offer expertise across several disciplines, which lies at the heart of our strength. Our track record proves that we deal with complex cases and having that multi-disciplinary expertise in-house adds to that ability.


Who should apply

We look for individuals with the skills and potential to provide a first-class professional service, combining a practical common sense approach and intellectual rigour. Applications are welcomed from both law and non-law students. The work in Chambers is intellectually demanding and competition for pupillage strong. Preferably, you are expected to have a minimum 2.1 class degree or equivalent. We also look for evidence that you have what it takes to be a successful advocate as well as the drive and skills to succeed as a self-employed professional. We welcome applications from all regardless of age, sex, religion, marital status, ethnic origin, disability, sexual orientation and social background.


Pupillage programme

We aim to recruit tenants from our pupils so pupillage recruitment and quality training are regarded as vital in maintaining our reputation for excellence and congeniality. Our pupils will experience all areas of work during their time in chambers. They will need to learn quickly during the first six months because they can expect to be in court on the first day of their second six. Each pupil builds up a portfolio of work during that time which, in part, will be used to assess their suitability for tenancy in June/July of the pupillage year.


How and when to apply

For further details on how to apply, please consult the recruitment section on our website www.11sb.com. Please consult our pupillage policy document within the same section for a full overview on selection, assessment, support and tenancy.


Mini-pupillages

Chambers offers a limited number of assessed minipupillages.Please visit www.11sb.com for further information and application details.


Sponsorship details

We offer a pupillage award of £65,000 (from 2015). In addition, a pupil can top up his/her earnings when going to court during his/her second six without any clawback. For the most up to date details, see www.11sb.com.
