9 St John Street Chambers welcomes Emma Clarke as a tenant following successful completion of her pupillage

Chambers is delighted to announce that Emma Clarke has successfully completed her Pupillage and has accepted an invitation to join Chambers.

Phil Barnes, Emma's pupil supervisor, commented:
"Emma's pupillage has been nothing short of impeccable. She is focussed, intelligent, personable and diligent.  During her second-six period of practising pupillage she has shown herself to be a dedicated, confident and extremely capable advocate. The feedback I have received from counsel, instructing solicitors and the judiciary has been relentlessly impressive. Emma will be a huge asset to the criminal team and I have no doubt that she will spend the rest of her career excelling in all that she does."
