Description of chambers
Monckton Chambers specialises in public and commercial law and the interface between the two.
Areas of work
We are recognised as a leading set within our specialisms, which include: competition and regulatory; public; sports; tax; and technology, media and communications. Our work is carried out in areas of the law that are rapidly growing and fast moving. It is exceptionally demanding, but also highly rewarding. We are the fastest growing set in the Bar Top 30 (revenues grew by 34% in 2015/16).
Who should apply
We are looking for candidates of the highest intellectual calibre. Most successful candidates for pupillage will have a first class honours degree (although it need not be in law) or a graduate degree in law.
We do not, however, expect candidates to have any experience or expertise in the specialised areas in which we practice, merely an interest and enthusiasm for the work that we do. We welcome applications from candidates who have degrees in subjects other than law and are taking (or have taken) the GDL.
It is not only intellectual skills that we are looking for: we are seeking candidates with the personal skills to win the trust of clients and judges alike. Monckton Chambers is a dynamic place to work. Members actively engage in speaking at conferences and seminars, in London and internationally, and in contributing to a variety of publications, ranging from our own marketing materials, to specialist journals and practitioner texts. We are looking for junior tenants who will bring real energy to chambers.
How and when to apply
Monckton Chambers is a member of the Bar Council Pupillage Gateway and all applications should be made in accordance with that scheme. We invite applications from pupils in the year preceding the October in which pupillage is due to start. We are, however, in exceptional circumstances willing to consider applications for deferral.
We operate a mini-pupillage scheme. This is intended for people who are in their final year at, or have already graduated from, university, and who are interested in our areas of legal practice. Details of how to apply can be found on our website.
