Due to an increasingly high volume of work, 5RB are seeking to recruit a third six pupil, with a view to tenancy.
5RB is the leading set specialising in all areas of media and communications law, including defamation, privacy, breach of confidence, data protection and information law, harassment, contempt of court and reporting restrictions. We are the only chambers to specialise exclusively in this fascinating area. Our members are regularly instructed in the most high-profile and groundbreaking cases, recently including the ‘Wagatha Christie’ libel claim (Vardy v Rooney), ZXC v Bloomberg in the Supreme Court, the Duchess of Sussex’s privacy and copyright claim, the litigation concerning the ‘Putin’s People’ book, and the Johnny Depp libel trial.
Our 35 full-time members act for both claimants and defendants and provide advice and representation to the press, television, radio, books and online publishers, as well as to celebrities and other individuals, businesses and not-for-profit entities.
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until 15 July 2022. Details on the application process and role are available on the Bar Council website here.
