Inns of Court Kalisher Representative
The Kalisher Trust is looking for one representative from each Inn who will assist:
- the Trust at all Kalisher events, including education and fundraising;
- in promoting Kalisher opportunities around the Inns; and
- in the administration of the Trust when required;
The Kalisher Trust team varies from junior members of the Bar to the senior Judiciary. All have a key role. You would be joining this team which will give you a fabulous opportunity to learn from and network with an evidently wide range of members of the legal profession.
This is a prime opportunity for students passionate about joining the Criminal Bar and who share the ethos of the trust.
The successful candidates will:
- have completed a law degree or Graduate Diploma in Law;
- have completed or soon be taking the BPTC;
- have an excellent academic record, and proven intellectual ability;
- have a demonstrated interest in criminal law and the criminal justice system;
- be motivated to succeed at the Criminal Bar, and have taken steps to develop skills and personal qualities necessary to succeed there;
- have demonstrated potential as an advocate;
- demonstrate financial need (in confidence, candidates will be asked to supply the interview panel with appropriate evidence ).
Stage 1: cover letter (indicating your Inn) and CV sent to email@example.com by midnight on the 1st October 2017. The cover letter must be no longer than 300 words and must explain:
- why you want the role; and
- how you satisfy the eligibility criteria;
Stage 2: 12 shortlisted applicants (3 from each Inn) will be invited for an interview with a panel drawn from Martin Shaw (Kalisher Vice President), Joe Harmston, Sir Brian Leveson (President of the Queen’s Bench Division), Lady Justice Rafferty, Mrs Justice Carr, Max Hill QC, Merry Van Woodenberg (Kalisher Trust Secretary) and Ed Gross (Assistant Secretary).
 There is no financial award for becoming a Kalisher Trust representative. However, the ethos of the trust is based around helping those with limited financial backing.
