Applications are to be received by 4 pm on 25th August 2017, and any successful candidates will be invited to interview by 5th September 2017. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.

All applications should be made by sending a CV and covering letter by email, marked for the attention of Emmi Wilson (emmi.wilson@walnuthouse.co.uk).

We are looking for a bright and enthusiastic candidate with proven advocacy skills and excellent academic credentials. You can expect to have a busy court practice across chambers’ core areas of work. The successful candidate will be required to travel throughout the Western Circuit and sometimes beyond.
