Applications for the May 2024 intake are now open and will close on 15 January 2023.
5 Wentworth Chambers currently offers readership positions coinciding with the April/May and August/September NSW Bar Practice Courses. Readers are offered accommodation on the Floor for the 12-month reading period with the possibility of further accommodation in our Annex once the reading year has been completed.
Applications for readership positions should be submitted by 15 January (for the May intake) and 15 May (for the September intake) of the year prior to the intake year, as the Readership Committee aims to make a decision within one month of those dates.
Applications made before the above dates may be considered ahead of time – applicants are encouraged to submit applications as soon as possible. If appropriate, the Readership Committee may also consider applications that are made after the above dates.
Applications and enquiries will be treated in strict confidence and should be directed to the Clerk. Applications should be accompanied by a covering letter, curriculum vitae and academic transcripts.
It is the usual course that successful applicants will have a member of 5 Wentworth as one of their tutors.
