Eight Selborne welcomes two readers each year, one in May and one in September.

Readers have exposure to a wide range of work and an opportunity to work closely with other barristers in a collegiate and supportive atmosphere.

We provide our readers with subsidised accommodation and the use of all facilities.

Wherever possible we accommodate readers after the conclusion of their reading year as licensees in our annex on Level 10 of the Law Society Building next door.

Readers are encouraged to have two tutors, at least one from Eight Selborne.

Applications for readership should generally be made by 5pm 22 January each year, for positions in May and September of the following year.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae and academic transcripts to our clerk, Sally Flynn.

And if you have any questions at any time about the application process or what your reading year would be like – please contact Sally.
