Third Six Opportunities at Hailsham Chambers


Hailsham Chambers invites applications for a third six pupil to commence in September or October 2022, with a view to joining our award-winning team. We are looking for a motivated, ambitious candidate who can demonstrate excellent intellectual ability, persuasive communication skills and a genuine interest in one or more of our core areas of practice: professional liability, medical law and costs law. Chambers has a strong supply of work for its junior members including a large amount of trial advocacy in both small claims and fast track matters, case management conferences and applications. The successful candidate can therefore expect to be in court regularly but will also have the opportunity to do plenty of paperwork.

Chambers will offer a guarantee of receipts of £25,000 from earnings, within the six months. We also offer support from a supervisor and a mentor.

Your application should include:

  • a covering letter explaining your interest in Hailsham Chambers;
  • your CV;
  • two recent pieces of written work (suitably anonymised), preferably one advice and one statement of case;
  • two references.

We ask that your referees include at least one recent pupil supervisor and we encourage referees to email us direct. Applications should be addressed to Nicola Rushton QC and emailed to

If you have any questions about a third six pupillage with us, please contact us on the above email address or telephone our senior clerk, Stephen Smith.

Applications must be received by 4.30pm on 5th September 2022 at the latest.

We are passionate about encouraging applications from a diverse range of candidates. We adhere to and support the Bar Council’s policies on equal opportunity and non-discrimination. We are happy to make any reasonable accommodation for candidates with disabilities.
