READERSHIPS

Life at the Bar is a vocation. Finding the right place to commence your reading year cannot be underestimated. It is a unique opportunity to receive diverse feedback and support which will develop your skills and practice. Applicants who are committed to life-long learning, who welcome a challenge and those who want to be part of an innovative floor would be well suited to Greenway Chambers.  

We have 32 members and places for two new readers each year, one starting after the May reading course, and the other after the September course. 

Readers have their own accommodation and full access to the floor library and an online subscription. Readers also have access to our extensive facilities and are encouraged to build relationships with the members of the floor. In addition to the reading year, Greenway has the possibility of accomodating readers after the first year through licensing arrangements. 

We are now accepting readership applications for September 2017, applications must be submitted by 31 July 2017. 

Applications can be submitted at any time, however, applications will only be assessed between 15 - 12 months before the corresponding bar course, and places will be awarded 12 months before the corresponding bar course. However, for May 2018 we will still accept applications during this year and places will be awarded in November 2017. 

If you would like more information or the written selection criteria please contact  Tobias O’Hehir

All applications will be treated in complete confidence.

GREENWAY READING INFORMATION EVENING

Greenway will hold a regular information in June or July each year. We would recommend that you come to one of these evenings to meet some of our members, staff and clerk. Members will provide their tips on coming to the Bar from their own experiences and there will be information regarding the floor's present activities and future aspirations. 

To register for the next Information Evening, please record your interest here and we will send you an email with the relevant dates.
