Sam McNeil has secured the position of Judicial Assistant at the High Court. Working in the King’s Bench Division, Sam will be working on a wide range of civil disputes.
Judicial assistants (JAs) in the High Court of England and Wales are assigned to judges of the High Court across the three Divisions. Their role, in the early years of their professional practice, offers a ringside view of the trial process and first instance decision-making from the perspective of the judge, for the most complex, high value and often high profile civil and family cases.
Aimed at recently qualified barristers and solicitors in the early stages of their legal career, the competitive application process asks for demonstrable effective decision making, excellent communication skills, the ability to deliver at pace, as well as a high level of professional integrity.
Sam McNeil comments “I’m excited to take up this position between October and July. I look forward to bringing what I have learned back to private practice.”
