Description of chambers
Landmark Chambers is ranked as the number one planning and environmental chambers in the UK by the top legal directories. We are consistently regarded as one of the leading sets in our other two main areas of work: property and public.
Members have been involved in some of the most significant cases and inquiries in recent years, including the Leveson Inquiry, High Speed 2, the third runway for Heathrow and the Supreme Court property case, Day v Hosebay Ltd.
Areas of work
Landmark is a leading chambers in the UK offering integrated advocacy and advice in the following areas of law: planning, property, public, environmental and international.
The pupillage year is divided into four seats of three months each. We offer our pupils experience in all of Chambers’ complementary practice areas (planning and environment, property, and public, law). We encourage pupils to work for other members and will arrange placements with a silk or senior junior on more complex cases. This allows our pupils to see a wide variety of work and take advantage of Landmark’s unique position as a leading specialist set with significant cross-over between its private and public law practices.
Pupils receive regular feedback from their supervisors, as well as undertaking formal feedback sessions with the Pupillage Committee after three, and six, months. During the year there are four formal assessments (three written and one oral) and pupils receive feedback on their performance in each of them.
How and when to apply
Chambers runs a staggered recruitment process. The first phase of recruitment takes place from 1 November onwards (through Landmark’s own recruitment portal) and is for candidates who have a particular interest in property law. The second phase of the process is for all candidates and takes place between January and May in accordance with Pupillage Gateway. We accept applications for up to two pupillages during this phase.
We operate three mini-pupillage seasons per year. The first (February-March) is aimed at first and second year law undergraduates and those who are considering a career change. During the second two intakes (May-June and October-November) preference is given to third year law undergraduates and those undertaking the GDL or BPTC.
Chambers offers all mini-pupils reimbursement of £100 for travel and lunch expenses. Additionally, Landmark operates a discretionary accommodation funding scheme for students visiting from outside London.
