Fantastic chambers across the board. Some excellent Juniors and fantastic senior Counsel. All incredibly down to earth and obliging. Very user friendly. A great bunch.”

St John’s chambers welcomes applications from solicitors who are seeking a career at the Bar. A number of our current tenants qualified as solicitors before transferring to a career at the Bar.

Bar Council regulations exempt qualified solicitors from applying through the normal pupillage route. Solicitors wishing to transfer to the Bar need to obtain relevant information and guidance from the Bar Standards Board and the Solicitor’s Regulation Authority:

With over 14 specialist practice areas we can offer a long and fulfilling career to successful candidates to suit their expertise and we provide all new joiners with the relevant support and guidance to transfer to the Bar. Our barristers, clerks and staff value the work of their colleagues and work cohesively and seamlessly together to provide the best quality service to our clients.

We are committed to diversity, inclusion and equality and further details about our approach in this regard can be found here. We offer a supportive and friendly work environment and continue to attract and retain the highest calibre of people to our set.

We welcome applications sent by way of a covering letter and a CV addressed in the first instance to Simon Rhodes, Chief Executive Officer, by email: [email protected] or 0117 924 4711. All approaches will be treated in the strictest confidence.

If you’d like to talk about the process, please just ask. We can easily put you in touch with one of our barristers who has transferred and been through the process.
