Work experience

Essex Court Chambers welcome applications for administrative and clerking work experience.

If you would like to apply for a one-week work experience placement, please complete the application form below.

Essex Court Chambers’ work experience programme is open to those currently undertaking GCSEs or A-levels (or the equivalent). Chambers is committed to equality of opportunity and will consider any requests for reasonable adjustments to assist disabled applicants. Please see the Equality & Diversity page for more information.

Please note that work experience is not offered during court vacations (which in general coincide with school holidays), nor is it for those who are seeking a career as a barrister.  For those that are interested in becoming a barrister please see our pupillage page. Also, regrettably, in accordance with the Bar Council guidelines, we are not in a position to offer tier Tier 5 sponsorship visas for work experience students.
