1MCB is currently inviting applications for probationary tenancy from candidates with experience of conducting a wide range of hearings. We are a multidisciplinary set with an ongoing commitment to access to justice for all members of the community and, as a testament to our work, 1MCB has several members ranked in the latest edition of the Legal 500. Chambers was also awarded “Outstanding Set for Diversity and Inclusion” at the Chambers UK Bar Awards 2021.

Candidates will primarily be expected to cover Chambers’ criminal work during their probationary tenancy and should have at least six months’ experience, including summary trials and Crown Court advocacy. There will also be scope for civil work, and candidates will be expected to cover civil hearings, such as family and immigration hearings with necessary support.

Probationary tenants will be allocated a supervisor and will benefit from ongoing support throughout their time with us. As a probationary tenant, you will have the benefit of a positive and collaborative working environment and the opportunity to build a multi-disciplinary practice alongside established and well-recognised practitioners. It is expected that probationary tenancies will last for a minimum of six months, after which candidates will have the opportunity to apply for tenancy within Chambers.

Applicants should email a CV and covering letter to Tenancy@1mcb.com. There is currently no deadline for this position. We will remove the advert from the website once we have recruited up to four suitable candidates.

1MCB is committed to the equality & diversity code for the Bar. We particularly encourage and welcome applications from African, Asian and other minoritised groups, women and persons with disabilities.
