Tenancy

As part of our continued growth and expansion, Rose Court Chambers seeks to recruit advocates of the highest quality to join our team.

Since we started in January 2021, Chambers has gone from strength to strength. We currently have 23 members. Our business model allows for members to pay a fiercely competitive rate of commission, providing stability and security, whilst also investing in cutting edge technology and administration.

We seek to recruit able practitioners who are committed and determined to succeed and who can contribute to and play an active role in the continued progress and success of Chambers. Applications from all levels of seniority are welcome.

Rose Court Chambers is also committed to excellence through inclusivity and diversity and as such we encourage applications from those who represent the community we strive to serve. We welcome applications from practitioners from communities who are traditionally under-represented in the legal sector. We also welcome applications from those who have taken a non-traditional route to legal qualification and the Bar.

Successful applicants can expect to have access to high quality and varied work and the support of an outstanding clerking team led by Joel Mason and Leon St Muir. New members will become part of an already close-knit and mutually supportive team.

All applications will be treated in the strictest confidence. Applicants are welcome to contact Senior Clerk Joel Mason on 07956 211 680 for an informal and confidential discussion. Any questions about the process or general enquiries are also welcome.

Applications should be addressed to the Tenancy Committee at tenancycommittee@rosecourtchambers.com

Probationary Tenancies

Rose Court invites applications from Probationary Tenants with an interest in pursuing criminal practise.

Rose Court offers applicants a unique opportunity to develop their own individual practises whilst at the same time giving them exposure to the full range of work available in a busy criminal set.

Interested applicants are encouraged to send their C.V along with a covering letter to the Tenancy Committee at tenancycommittee@rosecourtchambers.com

Mini Pupillages

Rose Court is committed to providing exposure and practical insights to the next generation of budding Barristers. We aim to give mini-pupils a taste of work in a modern legal practice.

Each mini-pupillage will aim to offer opportunities to attend court or other hearings, to work on legal research, and a chance to speak about pupillage applications, and the work we do. A mini pupillage at Rose Court Chambers offers you an opportunity to gain an impression of the work that we do as Criminal Barristers. It is also an opportunity for us to meet you.

We offer mini pupillages of 5 days, which are not formally assessed. They are usually during the Easter and Summer holidays although they can be arranged at other times. During your time with us you will shadow barristers at court. We try to ensure that at least some of your time is spent with the more junior members of chambers in order that you can gain a realistic view of life as a junior tenant. This also provides you with an opportunity to ask any questions you have about a career at the Criminal Bar.

Applicants for mini pupillage should have begun or completed a course of higher education. We are unable to offer work experience for school children under the age of 18 due to the nature of some criminal cases.

Ordinarily we consider applications throughout the year at quarterly intervals, being the end of January, April, July and October. We usually aim to consider all the applications received in the final week of each quarter.

Due to the ongoing Covid pandemic and its continuing effect on working practices at the Criminal Bar (social distancing etc.), mini-pupillages at Rose Court are limited. However, we are committed to offering applicants this experience where possible.

If you would like a mini pupillage with us then please send us a copy of your CV together with a covering letter addressed to Mr Callum Ratcliffe. Send your application marked as “Application for mini pupillage”, by email to minipupillage@rosecourtchambers.com
