The Silk Application and Life as a Junior Silk for TECBAR and COMBAR Practitioners: A Panel Discussion
Date: Friday 11 May 2018
Venue: Inner Temple, Parliament Chambers Time: 5:30pm
TECBAR and COMBAR are delighted to announce this panel discussion led by Fiona Sinclair QC, 4 Pump Court, followed by a Q&A session.
Confirmed panellists include:
Mrs Justice Carr DBE QC
Penelope Reed QC, 5 Stone Buildings and member of the QC Appointments Panel
Hannah Brown QC, One Essex Court
Lucy Garrett QC, Keating Chambers
Jawdat Khurshid QC, 7KBW
Marion Smith QC, 39 Essex Chambers
The panel will discuss the silk application process and the speakers’ experience of the process as applicants, referees and junior silks. The panel will emphasize the particular issues arising for commercial practitioners. Drinks will be provided after the event to allow attendees the chance to chat informally and discuss any topics with panel members and other attendees.
We welcome attendance by all practitioners (barristers and solicitors) and practice managers working in technology, construction, commercial, and similar practice areas who are interested in understanding the silk application process. This includes both those actively considering an application and more junior practitioners who want a better understanding of what the application and life ‘in silk’ entails.
This event is organised by the TECBAR and COMBAR Equality and Diversity Sub-Committees and has been generously supported by Inner Temple.
