Congratulations to all the successful candidates and commiserations to those who were disappointed.
If you are considering applying to take Silk in the future I think the competition report is essential reading. It thoroughly outlines the selection process and will help candidates to assess if they are ready and gives invaluable insights on how you should prepare.
2016-17 Competition Announcement 113 new appointments as Queen’s Counsel are announced today 12 January 2017. The full list of 2016-17 appointments, a press release relating to the announcement, the Selection Panel’s Report on the 2016-17 competition, documents setting out how the QC Selection Panel approached the competencies and statistics from 1995 to present can be found at the link below. The Silk Ceremony will be held on Monday 13 February 2017. I hope all our new, silks, their families, friends and clerks will have a memorable and very enjoyable day.
