Reader's accommodation

Sir James Martin Chambers

Sir James Martin Chambers awards two readers positions each year, usually one position for each Bar Practice Course. It is a requirement that any reader successful in gaining a position with Chambers reads with at least one member of the floor. The floor Clerk can assist in providing the details of Barristers who are on the approved list of Tutors.


Each reader is usually provided with a well appointed room for occupation during the twelve months of their reader’s period and presently are also provided with access to a Lexis Nexis online package including Case Base and unreported judgments. The rooms are well appointed and spacious. The floor maintains an extensive library and is connected to the BarNet network.


Positions are often the subject of considerable interest and applicants are encouraged to submit expressions of interest as early as possible. Regrettably, because of the level of interest and the standards of the applicants, not all applicants can be accommodated.  Applicants may be invited to an interview with one or more of the floor members. Offers of positions will usually not be made until approximately three to four months prior to the commencement of the readership period.


In the first instance, any applications or expressions of interest should be forwarded to the Clerk, Kirsti Reith. Any such applications should include a detailed CV and covering letter. All applications will be treated in confidence.
