The Bar: What's it like for Women? - One Essex Court

One Essex Court is a leading set of barristers’ Chambers, specialising in commercial litigation and arbitration.

Fewer women than we would like are applying for a career at the Commercial Bar. In order to encourage women to consider this career, we are holding an information event on Tuesday 13 March 2018 in London: Parliament Chamber, Inner Temple, Crown Office Row, London, EC4Y 7HL.

Three female members of Chambers of varying seniority will give short talks about their experiences of life and work at the Commercial Bar followed by a question & answer session. There will then be an opportunity for students to talk informally over drinks to those and several other members of Chambers and clerks. The event is open to women and men and to law and non-lawstudents. A flyer for the event is attached. Students can book their place by emailing

We will be live-streaming the event and those unable to attend in person are welcome to watch the live-stream. For details, please see our website

Please find the attached flyer for further details.
