A leading legal magazine has listed the top ten young barristers in England and Wales after contacting more than 350 solicitors, barristers, QCs and senior clerks to ascertain their views on the rising stars of the profession. 325 barristers were recommended before the final ten were profiled by journalist Ben Rigby for the magazine’s annual Stars at the Bar list.

Seven of this top ten are graduates of The City Law School:

Simon Atrill Fountain Court Chambers (BVC, 2005)
Siddharth Dhar Essex Court Chambers (BVC, 2005)
Charles Raffin Hardwicke Chambers (BVC, 2005)
Amy Sander Essex Court Chambers (BVC, 2006)
Luke Pearce 20 Essex Street (BVC, 2007)
Can Yeginsu 4 New Square (GDL, 2007)
Michael Watkins One Essex Court (Post Graduate Diploma in Professional Legal Skills, 2009)

Professor Carl Stychin, Dean of The City Law School, commented:

“It is tremendous to see our alumni achieving this level of recognition so early in their careers. Our rigorous professional programmes are well known for attracting some of the most able and hard-working students, so it is extremely gratifying to see them reaching their potential”.
