Becket Chambers is the largest set of independent barristers chambers in Kent, and as we celebrate our 30-year anniversary in 2023, also the oldest. Our members benefit from our established reputation, experienced staff, and our facilities in Canterbury, Brighton, Dartford, Kings Hill (Maidstone) and Tunbridge Wells.

We are a vibrant, social set with excellent relationships with law firms throughout the region. Our barristers work across Kent, Sussex, London and the Southeast on high quality cases, and demand for our member’s expertise is strong. We are following a clear and defined strategy of growth and specialisation, which focuses on family and civil law. We also have members who undertake Direct Access work and are qualified mediators and arbitrators.

We know that our most important resource is our people, and we aim to support members to create a working lifestyle that suits them. Our clerks manage a quality caseload, enabling members to develop a practice that is as busy as they desire, and we offer guidance and mentoring to new members to help them feel supported.

At Becket Chambers, we have developed an egalitarian and collegiate environment, enabling barristers at all career stages to flourish. Because of the structure of Becket Chambers, members can work flexibly, and no minimum earning level is required.

“When I transferred to Becket Chambers from another set, I was made to feel very welcome and comfortable and the whole process was handled quickly and efficiently.


On my first day, I received many emails from members, including those I didn’t know, with generous welcome messages. The clerks made my transition to Becket Chambers seamless, including the transfer of my diary and other administrative issues. The Management Committee were kind enough to agree to a transitionary commission rate, while I was undertaking a combination of work booked by my previous Chambers and Becket Chambers.


In everything they have done for me since they have impressed me as being hugely efficient and supportive.”

We try to ensure that everyone at Becket Chambers has the opportunity to develop their full potential by providing an inclusive environment that encourages progression and achievement. Outside of work, we arrange social events so that members can get together, exchange ideas, strengthen friendships and offer mutual support.

We regularly conduct in-depth reviews of our Chambers, using independent professionals who can provide an experienced and unbiased view to analyse our structure, policies, management and business development to ensure that we are positioned correctly and adapt and evolve as required.
