5 Essex Court is a specialist civil chambers and is acknowledged to be one of the leading sets practising in the field of police law. Members of chambers appear in the majority of significant cases and public inquiries and inquests concerning police forces.
In addition to police law, we have highly successful teams in public law, employment, personal injury and licensing. A high proportion of members of chambers are Treasury Counsel across all three panels.
We look to recruit high calibre pupils who will enhance our expertise and strengthen our reputation as a first-class set.
We offer a well-established pupillage programme and have an excellent retention rate of our pupils as tenants. We look for bright, articulate, highly motivated, ambitious applicants with an interest in our core practice areas and who seek a rewarding career at the Bar. No prior experience of police law is necessary.
Chambers offers up to two 12-month funded pupillages with a view to a tenancy.
5 Essex Court is a member of the Pupillage Portal / Pupillage Gateway.
