Over the last few years, we have realised that fewer women than we would like are applying for a career at the commercial Bar. In order to encourage women to consider a career at the Bar, One Essex Court is offering an Open Day on 2 March 2017 to allow students to learn more about life at the commercial Bar for women.
This one-day event, which will be hosted by barristers and clerks from One Essex Court, will include talks and advice sessions, interactive activities and networking opportunities all aimed at providing students with an invaluable insight into the life and work of successful female commercial barristers. The event is open to women and men and to law and non-law students.
We welcome applications from students in any year of undergraduate or postgraduate study and any discipline. The application form can be downloaded from our website http://www.oeclaw.co.uk/pupillage/open-day and must be submitted by 26 January 2017. Consideration will be given to all applications received by that date and up to 30 successful applications will be selected. We will notify successful applicants by email by 16 February 2017 and will reimburse reasonable travel expenses.
One Essex Court is a leading set of barristers’ Chambers, specialising in commercial litigation and arbitration. Our work embraces all aspects of domestic and international trade, commerce and finance.
