Join List G Barristers

List G Barristers welcomes expressions of interest to join at any time. We look for applicants who will add strength to our reputation as leading commercial and public law advocates. 

New Readers

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 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 legal practice. Successful applicants receive a commission free period on joining List G Barristers and a comprehensive range of exclusive member benefits.

Interviews for the September 2022 course will be conducted in the week commencing 18 July.

Practising Barristers

List G Barristers can provide options for practising barristers who are returning to the Bar after a period of absence, or from practising in a different jurisdiction. We also accept applications from barristers who wish to transfer from another list. Practising barristers should contact our CEO, Jane King at any time for further information about joining List G Barristers.
