Old Square Chambers does not, at this time, offer a work placement scheme orientated towards GCSE and A Level (or equivalent) students. The impact of Covid on Chambers means that we have very few barristers attending court and very few staff available to support our work experience programme.
Whilst we appreciate that this will not meet the needs of students wishing to utilise work experience with chambers to meet the requirements of their educating bodies, we are happy to arrange for a chat with our Chambers Director, Sarah Earl, if you’d like to know more about us or the Bar as a whole. This can be after school or college, via Zoom, and you will be able to speak with her about how a chambers works, what our barristers and clerking/support staff do (depending on which career path you are interested in) and ask any questions you may have (including regarding CVs, voluntary work etc.). She is happy to speak to students in small groups or with their parent/guardian if that is of benefit.
If you would like to arrange this, which is entirely informal, friendly and is not designed to be intimidating but instead an alternative means to talk about our sector and the career prospects it might offer, please contact Chloe Fallon (email@example.com) who will make the arrangements with you. At this time and depending on demand, this will be available in February and March.
