The Silk Application and Life as a Junior Silk - A Panel Discussion in London
On 11 May 2018, a Panel discussion will be held in the Inner Temple, 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. Attendance is welcome by all practitioners (barristers and solicitors) and practice managers 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.
The event is open to members of COMBAR, TECBAR and the Chancery Bar Association.
