Because the role of a Barristers’ Clerk is very different from many other “office” jobs (for a start, we never call Chambers an office – it is always “Chambers” or “a set”) we have written this online Introduction to Clerking to give you a helping hand in getting to grips with how a set of Chambers works, understanding the Court structure and the often unique terminology used in Chambers.

We hope that this module will help you to learn more about building a career within a set of Chambers, provide information on how most Chambers operate and also be a point of reference that you can return to for queries or to refresh your memory.
