Survey Results - Trainee feedback on Wilberforce Chambers
The lowdown - Pupils (in their own words) on Wilberforce Chambers
We sent The Lex 100 Pupil Barrister survey to pupils and juniors up to two years in tenancy at Wilberforce Chambers. Here is what they had to say:
Why did you choose this firm over any others?
‘Prestige, quality of work, breadth of commercial chancery range’, ‘they were the most highly-ranked chambers’, ‘because the people seemed friendly and the areas of work fitted my interests the best’
How does your training compare with what you have heard from pupils at other chambers?
‘Unusually humane, focus on learning rather than relentless assessment, more opportunities to do own work towards end of pupillage’, ‘more thorough and structured’, ‘broadly similar’
What is the best thing about the chambers?
‘Quality of work’
What is the worst thing about the chambers?
‘Relatively low proportion of tenants work from chambers’, ‘we are spread across several buildings so don’t regularly see everyone’
What has been the best moment of your training to date?
‘Having my supervisor use some of my arguments before the Court of Appeal’
What has been the worst moment of your training to date?
‘Bad feedback on some of my work for my supervisor’
