Always keen to support those interested in a career at the Bar, New Walk Chambers were amongst the speakers at the "A career in law" careers talk held at Loughborough University on the 9th November 2011.

Christopher Knowles attended the event and gave a talk on a  career at the Bar and the life of a Pupil Barrister. He was one of three speakers at the event - the other two being representatives from the Government Legal Service and the College of Law.

His talk covered the numerous routes to a career as a Barrister, and what chambers would be looking for in prospective pupils and how to apply for pupillage.During the course of the talk, Christopher touched upon the Inns of Court, the Bar Professional Training Course and CV and application form tips.

Following the talk, Christopher remained behind to answer questions from students and participated in an exercise with the College of Law, which covered aspects of the core modules which would be studied on the graduate diploma in law course, namely contract, criminal, tort, land, constitutional, equity and trusts, and european law.


Easements Reform Consultation Launched

09 May 2008, 09:59 by Simon Liddy

Labels: easements, land-law, land-obligation, law-commission

The Law Commission has launched a consultation on wide scale reform to land law, specifically in relation to easements, covenants, and profits à prendre. The executive summary of the consultation raises the perceived problems: inadvertent creation of easements coupled with the inability of the courts to remove them due to changes in circumstances; the competing, overlapping and complex relationship of proprietary and contractual interests in restrictive covenants, and a number of other areas. The main focus of the reform is the semi-abolition of restrictive covenants and replacing them with a "Land Obligation", and a significant reduction in the circumstances in which easements and profits can be created by any other means than grant. The full consultation documents can be viewed on the Commission's site, and the deadline for responses is 30th June 2008.
