Fountain Court was pleased to see a large attendance at its recruitment event in Cambridge on 11 February. This is part of the series of events entitled “A career as a commercial barrister: a great choice for women” — and is an initiative in collaboration with Brick Court Chambers, Essex Court Chambers and One Essex Court.

The Cambridge event follows a successful event in Oxford, with a London event being scheduled shortly. The series provides insights into the working lives of female barristers in the Magic Circle, and an opportunity to understand the trajectory of the careers of women who have pursued successful careers at the commercial Bar while adopting a suitable work/life balance.
