Tenancy decisions are based principally on the considered views of the pupil’s own pupil supervisors and the pupil’s performance in assessed exercises.
Tenancy decisions are made after nine months’ pupillage, around the end of June. These decisions are based principally on the considered views of the pupil’s own pupil supervisors and the pupil’s performance in assessed exercises. There is no quota: we offer tenancy to all pupils who achieve the required standard of excellence. Our hope is that all our pupils will achieve the standard we are looking for and be offered tenancy.
Life as a junior tenant
In the first year of practice, a new tenant at Quadrant Chambers on average can earn around £130,000. Thereafter, earnings should rapidly increase. In the first year tenants receive considerable discounts on Chambers’ charges and pay no fee at all in their first 6 months
In order to assist new tenants with financial planning, an interest free loan is available at the discretion of the Management Committee in the first year of tenancy.
During their early years in practice, Members of Chambers regularly appear in court and arbitration on their own, in small banking, aviation, shipping and insolvency matters. We believe that this is essential for developing advocacy skills. Junior tenants also act as juniors in much larger cases alongside more senior Members of Chambers.
