Three Raymond Buildings is recognised as a leading set in criminal law and related fields, its members practising nationally and internationally. With a reputation for excellence in advocacy and advisory work, we are highly ranked in legal directories in all areas of our practice. The breadth and quality of our practice enables us to meet present and future challenges with confidence. We foster a strong, open and cohesive culture.
Our main areas of expertise are:
Criminal law: general, fraud, PoCA. Defending and prosecuting at first instance and in appellate courts, our members specialise in serious frauds and have appeared in many notable cases. We are expert in cases of money laundering and confiscation.
International – extradition, MLA, tribunals. We have appeared in many of the most significant extradition cases in England. We stand at the forefront of the law relating to mutual legal assistance. Our tribunal work extends to the international arena.
Public and administrative law: judicial review, inquests, inquiries. Members regularly appear in the High Court in all types of applications for judicial review. Members have been involved in some of the most significant inquests and public inquiries of recent times.
Licensing – all statutory licensing regimes with an emphasis on liquor, gambling, security and entertainment. We are highly experienced in every facet of licensing law.
Regulatory enforcement – health & safety, environmental & financial. This diverse area spans all areas of activity which are subject to statutory regulation.
Professional discipline: police, medical, sports. Our extensive criminal and regulatory work makes us the first choice for proceedings relating to police officers.
You will receive £35,000 for the year (£20,000 grant plus £15,000 guaranteed earnings) plus travel expenses outside zone 2.
As a pupil you will be allocated three supervisors, each for four months, through whom you will gain exposure to all areas of our work. You are encouraged to work with as many members of chambers as possible. A junior tenant acts as a point of contact for all pupils, and stands outside the assessment process.
We run our own training programme and provide funding of up to £500 per pupil towards external training.
Our clerking and administrative staff are friendly and helpful and we have excellent support facilities, including an electronic library for legal research.
Pupils will be considered for tenancy at the end of pupillage. The number of tenancies is not limited, and will reflect the standard of candidates applying at the time.
This year we will be operating outside the Pupillage Gateway and will not be following the Gateway timetable. Please visit our website for further details of pupillage. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an electronic pupillage pack.
Applications open: Tuesday 27 November 2018 Closing date: Monday 21 January 2019 at 5 pm.
