List G Barristers welcomes expressions of interest to join our membership at any time. We look for applicants who will add strength to our reputation as leading commercial and public law advocates.
To practise as a barrister in Victoria, lawyers must first become ‘Readers’, which involves nine months of reading with an experienced barrister mentor. During this period, Readers are required to complete the Readers’ Course run by the Victorian Bar in March and September each year. Entry to the course is by exam.
List G Barristers welcomes applications from practitioners who have passed the Bar exam and are intending to undertake the Readers’ Course. We offer the opportunity to develop your practice in a leading Melbourne commercial and public law list and have a proud history of high calibre recruitment.
Written applications should be submitted in accordance with the Victorian Bar Guidelines for List Applications and addressed to our CEO, Jane King. Applications should include a cover letter and curriculum vitae outlining your experience and intended legal practice at the Victorian Bar. Successful applicants receive a commission free period on joining List G Barristers, and a comprehensive range of exclusive member benefits.
Interviews for the March 2024 intake will likely be conducted in the week commencing 12 February 2024.
Practising barristers should contact our CEO, Jane King at any time for a confidential discussion about the application process for joining List G Barristers. Membership offers to practising barristers are extremely limited and subject to Board approval.
