Student Open Day

Essex Court Chambers hosts an annual Student Open Day, intended to give an introduction to Chambers and working at the Commercial Bar.

The next Student Open Day will be held in April 2019. More details will be sent to those who apply to attend.

The day typically includes a workshop session on advocacy skills, as well as talks from members of Chambers and the clerking team on:

  • applying for pupillage;
  • the pupillage year and the tenancy decision;
  • life as a junior tenant in Chambers; and
  • the nature of work at the Commercial Bar.

The day is entirely non-assessed. Attendees have the opportunity to meet members of Chambers and the clerking team, and ask any questions they may have, in a friendly and informal atmosphere.

Applications to attend the Student Open Day are welcomed from first year undergraduates (in law and non-law subjects) upwards. The Application window to attend the April 2019 Student Open Day is now closed. All applications are being considered and all applicants will be notified by Monday 1st April 2019.

We are 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.
