9 St John Street Chambers is one of the leading Chambers outside London. The legal directories regularly place us amongst the top Chambers of the North, and 9 St John Street Chambers is recognised by both Chambers and Partners, and The Legal 500 both as a set and across the practice groups. We currently have 9 Silks and 101 Juniors.

Chambers is organised into specialist practice groups: Commercial & Property, Crime, Employment, Family, Health & Safety, Personal Injury, Insurance Fraud and Travel Law.

Pupillages are only offered in areas in which Chambers believes new tenants are required.

We anticipate that we will be recruiting two new pupils for Autumn 2022 into our Commercial/Business and Property and Criminal Teams.
