Reading at 5 Selborne provides an excellent opportunity to work closely with some of the most respected barristers in their fields in a collegiate environment. Members’ diversity of experience and depth of expertise offer readers a solid foundation for developing a strong practice at the Bar.

Readership is for a 12-month period commencing to coincide with the Bar Practice Courses, which take place in May and September. During that period, readers are provided accommodation. Readers are expected to have a 5 Selborne member as a tutor and are usually invited to continue as licensees.

The application process is highly competitive. Applications must generally be submitted at least 15 months before an applicant wishes to commence.
