Welcome to the website of the South Eastern Circuit.
I am privileged to be the Leader of this honourable and important Circuit. We are the largest of six geographical Circuits that make up the Bar of England and Wales. The Circuit stretches from Lewes up to Norwich and from Ipswich to Reading.
It is a representative, educational and social organisation. It represents the interests of members through, for example, the attendance of the Leader at meetings with Government regarding issues affecting barristers and through responses to consultations. It offers educational programmes including advocacy training. Furthermore, it offers the opportunity to socialise with colleagues at regular functions.
The South Eastern Circuit is open to all barristers practising predominantly in the South East of England. Please do consider joining us. You really only do get out what you put into this job and the Circuit will certainly benefit from your joining.
