Legal Assistant- Keating Chambers
Monday, 13th May 2019
Keating Chambers is a leading commercial set specialising in high-profile construction, engineering, IT, telecommunications and energy related disputes, which typically involve issues relating to the law of contract, tort and restitution. Chambers also undertakes a broader range of work including professional negligence, EU procurement and competition law, environmental and other regulatory work, bonds, guarantees and party wall matters.
This position does not require any prior specialist knowledge of construction law or experience of the construction industry. However, the role will be very demanding. As well as assisting members of Chambers with research for ongoing or contemplated proceedings, the successful candidate will assist in preparing presentations, lectures and articles relating to Chambers’ principal practice areas.
Applicants should be motivated, able to work under pressure and to tight deadlines, and manage several projects at any one time. Previous appointees have completed the BPTC or equivalent and this is regarded as highly desirable for the role. The ability to understand and analyse complex legal issues and to communicate clearly is essential. So too is a high level of competence with both online research tools (including Westlaw, Justis, Lawtel, BAILII and Construction Law Reports) and paper sources (such as Halsbury’s Laws/Statutes).
In return, Keating Chambers will offer the successful applicant a salary of c.28k p.a. and an interest-free loan to cover travelling expenses to and from work (if required) and pension scheme. In addition, the role will provide unrivalled exposure to areas of Chambers’ work and to leading practitioners involved in high profile work.
Applicants should complete an application form and send a covering letter headed “RE: LEGAL ASSISTANT POSITION” by midday on Monday 17th June 2019 via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Ms Elaine Browne at Keating Chambers, 15 Essex St, London, WC2R 3AA. Each application should name two academic referees who will be contacted prior to any offer being made. It is anticipated that interviews will take place in Chambers late afternoon / early evening at the start of July 2019 and employment will commence early September by arrangement.

European Circuit event: The nuts and bolts of cross-border and EU litigation post-Brexit
Thursday, 9th May 2019
Whatever happens with Brexit, a knowledge of EU law and its principles has become increasingly relevant for a legal practice in most areas of law. Presuming Brexit goes ahead, the entire acquis of EU law will crystallise and become part of our domestic law on Brexit day, but subject to ministerial powers to re-write areas of law considered to be “deficient”. Lawyers wishing to challenge any unlawful exercise of these Henry VIII powers will not only need to have a solid grounding in public law and judicial review but will also need to understand EU law on Brexit day, as well as EU law and its legal principles as they develop. And even if Brexit is halted in its tracks, there is an ever greater need now to understand EU law in cases involving both domestic and cross-border litigation.
