At St Philips, we are synonymous with attracting and nurturing some of the finest talent at the Bar and we are looking to add to our Criminal Group by seeking tenancy applications from barristers between 1 to 10 years’ call. We also welcome applications from those seeking a probationary tenancy.

If you are an ambitious, highly motivated junior with the goal of developing your practice by undertaking high calibre work at a leading set then this is an excellent opportunity for you.

Our Criminal Group, comprising 8 Queen’s Counsel and 38 juniors, is consistently top-ranked by Chambers & Partners and the Legal 500 and has a proven track record of producing Queen’s Counsel and members of the judiciary including a current Lord Justice of the Court of Appeal.

You will not only benefit from access to the minds and the depth of experience of a supportive group of colleagues but also, importantly a competitive charging structure, state-of-the-art facilities and clerking dedicated to practice development.


Our Chambers has a very bright future, if you would like to be part of it then please apply for tenancy or a probationary tenancy. Further information on how to apply can be found here: tenancy applications.

All applications are received in confidence.

Alternatively, if you’d simply like a confidential discussion about life at St Philips, please feel free to contact our senior criminal clerk, Andrew Rourkearouke@st-philips.com or Criminal Group member, Jonathan Barkerjbarker@st-philips.com.

St Philips Barristers is committed to equal opportunities and promoting diversity.
