With just over 350 senior clerks and around 1,200 junior clerks in the UK, the job of a Barristers’ clerk was traditionally dominated by wide-boys from Essex, who followed their father into the role and worked their way up from trundling trollies to Court, to sometimes earning more than the Barristers they worked for. As the rest of the legal landscape is changing, the job of the clerk is evolving, becoming increasingly professional and, like the Bar, slowly more diverse. But what do they do and how do you become one? Do not miss out on listening to this episode, in which Hatti Suvari and senior clerk and Chambers Director at 23 Essex Street Chambers, Wayne King, bring you this unique, insightful and the first of it's kind episode! Wayne bares all about this unique profession, discussing his journey of how he became a Barrister's clerk, what it is like working in this unique area of the law and why it is so pivotal to our legal system.
