Central Chambers operates from premises in the centre of Manchester. We consist of 24 barristers including two Queen’s Counsel and one door tenant. We have an ongoing pupillage programme and are pleased to say that we recruit with a view tenancy. We are also open to applications from established counsel in criminal, family, and coronial law – amongst other areas.
We are professional and objective whilst being friendly and approachable. Such principles have guided Central Chambers since its inception in early 1996.
Central Chambers has members who are able to provide representation through the Direct Public Access Scheme. See the individual practice areas to find the right barrister for your case.
We are also proud to offer a specialist law clinic for members of the LGBTQIA+ community – a group that is traditionally under-represented within the legal world. Initial assistance is free and we may be able to assist you on a pro bono basis, depending upon your legal issue.
We invite applications from prospective tenants who would like to join our expanding and modern set. Click here to find out more.
Chambers deals effectively and efficiently with all instructions received. Our service is regularly monitored by conducting surveys and meetings with our clients.
Central Chambers also has CPD accreditation from both the Solicitors Regulatory Authority and The Bar Standards Board. Our members are experts in their fields and provide training to solicitors and barristers in those specialist areas.
Central Chambers operates an equal opportunities policy and opposes discrimination on the grounds of gender, race, disability, age or sexual orientation.
We have a proud tradition of helping the underprivileged and disadvantaged. We do this in court and we do it through fundraising for various charities. In recent years, we have helped international charities (such as Amnesty International), national charities (such as the Care Leavers’ Association), and local charities (such as Barnabus and Greater Manchester Law Centre).
