153 Phillip offers readership positions to lawyers commencing as barristers.

The floor looks for outstanding candidates who would be suitable in due course to join the floor as members.

Prospective candidates should apply about a year before they intend to commence the Bar Readers course by making an expression of interest to our floor secretary, Barry Dean.

Expressions of interest should include a cover letter or email, a current CV and at least two referees. We recommend talking to the floor secretary or another member of the floor before preparing and submitting your expression of interest.

Readers on the floor must read with a member and are encouraged to have an off-floor tutor as well.

Our members are also available to serve as tutors for readers who do not read on the floor. Contact our floor secretary or clerk if you would like one of our members to serve as your tutor.
