4 New Square are hosting an open evening on Tuesday 24th October for City and LSE University Students on ‘What is life like for a woman at the Commercial Bar?’ This event is a chance to hear three of our successful female practitioners at varying stages of their careers (Alison Padfield, Helen Evans and Marie-Claire O’Kane), plus our female senior clerk, Lizzy Stewart, talk about their experiences. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and chat informally over a drink with both male and female members of Chambers. The event is open to men as well as women.  If you are interested in a career at the Commercial Bar but think you might not fit in, you are particularly welcome to attend this event.
