3 Hare Court is a leading civil law set with particular expertise in civil fraud, commercial litigation, employment, insolvency, international work including arbitration, financial services, personal injury and travel litigation, professional negligence, and property and construction litigation. We also undertake public, administrative and constitutional law with a number of members of Chambers appointed to government panels. Chambers is also a leading Privy Council set with a number of links to the Caribbean.

Individual members of Chambers are recognised and ranked by the leading directories in each of the following areas: administrative and public law; aviation; chancery-commercial; civil liberties and human rights; commercial dispute resolution; construction; fraud-civil; employment; immigration; insolvency (including restructuring); offshore; personal injury; professional negligence; and travel litigation.

“3 Hare Court offers an ‘impressive line-up of top-quality counsel’ across a wide range of specialisms, including commercial litigation, fraud, and insolvency, amongst others, and ‘never fails to impress’” Legal 500- 2020 edition

“3 Hare Court is comprised of hard-working, dedicated and focused barristers and clerks, who strive to ensure that the client’s needs are accommodated. The team works tirelessly to protect their clients’ positions and provide an outstanding legal service while maintaining a friendly and approachable environment.” Chambers UK, 2020 edition

3 Hare Court recognises the challenges faced across the Bar in improving access to the profession by candidates from under- represented groups and is committed to promoting equality and diversity in Chambers.

Chambers works with IntoUniversity, providing advice and work experience days to support those from disadvantaged backgrounds who wish to consider a career as a barrister. Chambers is also proud to support Bridging the Bar, a charity committed to the promotion of equal opportunities and diversity at the Bar. Further, members sit on the BSB Race Equality Task Force, take part in equality and diversity programmes organised by the Inns, such as the Inner Temple outreach and schools project, and are involved in charities such as Education and Employers and Inspiring the Future regularly going to CV workshops and giving career talks.

3 Hare Court aims to provide the highest quality pupillage training in a friendly and supporting environment. This includes provision of an advocacy training programme specifically designed to prepare pupils for the type of cases that they are likely to be dealing with in their formative years. During pupillage itself, pupils will be mentored by up to six different pupil supervisors (in two months blocks). This allows prospective tenants to experience a wide range of work in each of our core practice areas.

Chambers recruits up to 2 pupils a year, who can each expect to be in court regularly in their second six. Chambers has a long-established history of recruitment from its own pupils, having offered tenancies to 10 out of the last 10 pupils. In addition, Chambers is committed to assist the transition from pupillage to tenancy with new tenants enjoying generous concessions in the first few years of practice.

Our Pupillage award for 2023 is £55,000 comprising of:

£35,000 grant in the first 6 months
£20,000 in your second 6 months, plus receipts
