TUESDAY 5 March 2019, 5:30pm
GOVERNMENT LEGAL DEPARTMENT
Room 6JK, ONE KEMBLE STREET, LONDON, WC2B 4TS
(Just off Kingsway)
This is an event aimed at those thinking about applying to join the Attorney General’s London A, B and C Panels of Civil Counsel. The competition to make appointments to all three of the London Panels will open on Tuesday 19 February 2019 and will close at midday on Tuesday 2 April 2019.
The Law Officers maintain three London panels of Junior Counsel (A, B and C) to undertake civil work for all government departments. There is a wide variety of expertise required, not just in Public Law, to meet the needs of Government across the civil courts and tribunals. These can range from employment or personal injury to pensions or intellectual property.
Information will be provided about the work of all the panels, and the appointments and application process.
An existing member of London Panel Counsel will speak about their own experiences of panel work, in particular the types of cases they have undertaken during their time on the Panels and their experience of the application process.
The aim of this event is to demystify the application process and to encourage as many of those who have the qualifications to apply to do so.
To reserve a place, please email PanelCounsel@governmentlegal.gov.uk by Friday 1 March.
Wine and soft drinks follow the meeting with an opportunity to ask questions of the speakers and senior Government Lawyers.
