5 Paper Buildings seeks applicants who are highly articulate and possess strong analytical and intellectual abilities. We are looking for individuals who will fit in to the friendly working environment. We encourage our pupils to participate fully in Chambers' life, but do not expect them to do so at the expense of their outside interests.
Applicants are accordingly assessed by reference to the following criteria
Written skills: presenting arguments, giving advice and drafting documents
Personal skills: ability to communicate with solicitors, clients and experts
Ability to analyse documentation and oral information, and to identify salient issues
Attention to detail
Professional stamina/capacity for hard work
Independence of mind
Ability to relate well to others
Ability to work both alone and as part of a team
We are happy to make reasonable adjustments to enable disabled candidates to demonstrate their suitability to become pupils, and if successful in their pupillage tenants.
