Attorney General to refresh regional panels of junior counsel

The Attorney General last month began the procurement process for the appointment of new members to his regional panels of junior counsel.

The Regional A, B and C Panels undertake civil and EU work for government departments. The A Panel is for senior juniors, the B Panel for middle juniors and the C Panel for junior juniors.

There are vacancies on the panel in all areas of public and private law.

Membership of the Regional panels is open to both barristers and solicitors with the appropriate qualifications.

Applicants must have over two years’ experience in actual practice by 30 November 2017 (starting from end of second six months' pupillage for barristers, end of training contracts for solicitors).

Those appointed to the Regional C panel will often provide (but not exclusively) the Regional A and B panel members of the future and so should have the potential to join the A panel, the Attorney General’s Office said.

The contracts are scheduled to start on 1 March 2018 and run until 23 February 2023.

Completed applications must be submitted by midday on 30 November 2017.
