Legal Associates

Richmond Chambers LLP is an award-winning partnership of specialist immigration barristers.  Established in 2013 as the first barrister-only immigration law firm, our lawyers specialise in all aspects of personal and business immigration law, with a focus on providing high quality immigration law advice and representation directly to members of the public.  

The Position

We are currently recruiting legal associates at all levels to join our immigration team.  This is an exciting opportunity for those looking to gain or further experience of the modern immigration bar.

You will work closely with, and in support of, our immigration barristers, assisting with visa applications, immigration appeals and judicial reviews across all areas of personal and business immigration law.  Your responsibilities will vary, according to your level of previous experience, but may include: legal research, drafting, attending conferences, attending hearings and providing general casework administrative support. Our focus on direct access immigration work means that you will have a high level of client contact and responsibility from day one.

Chambers offers a friendly and supportive working environment.  Our legal associates receive excellent training from both the barristers that they work alongside and through attending in-house and external training courses.

Our legal associates are eligible to apply for pupillage and have previously been successful in our open pupillage competitions. However, employment as a legal associate will not guarantee an offer of pupillage.  We do not offer training contracts.

  • be able to demonstrate an interest in and commitment to the field of immigration law;
