The Path to Silk


Do you aspire to take silk in future years, but aren't ready to apply? Perhaps you’d like to know what you ought to be thinking about and doing now to develop your practice for when the time comes.

Join us for a panel discussion with some of the Bar’s leading commercial silks on the different paths they took to get there, the challenges they faced (and overcame), and what they wish they’d known when they were juniors.

This session is hosted by CommBar. Whilst it is particularly targeted to commercial barristers above about 7 years’ call, it is expected to be of benefit to those from other practice areas and all are welcome to attend.

To encourage frank discussion, this session will be in-person only, and will not be streamed or recorded. Questions for the panel can be submitted in advance via the registration link or can be emailed to Elle Nikou Madalin at


This is an in-person event only and will not be livestreamed or recorded.
