On 12 November Fountain Court Chambers co-hosted (with Brick Court Chambers, One Essex Court and Essex Court Chambers) a very successful student event in Oxford under the banner “A Career at the Commercial Bar – a great choice for women”. Open to all, the well-attended event was chaired by Dame Sara Cockerill from the Commercial Court and was designed to inform students about what it’s really like to be a commercial barrister and to encourage talented students to consider the bar as a career. Further events at other universities are planned.
