The Attorney General is to appoint new members to one of his panels of junior counsel, the London C panel, to undertake civil and EU work for government departments.
Members of the C panel will be expected to have at least two years’ experience in actual practice (from end of 2nd six months’ pupillage for barristers, date of commencement of advocacy for solicitors).
Appointments will be for five years.
The Attorney General said those appointed to the C panel “will often (but not exclusively) provide the A and B panel members of the future and so should have the potential to join the A panel.”
There are vacancies on the panel in all areas of public and private law.
