Her Bar interviews Natalie Bryan, Junior Clerk at 3PB Winchester as to what life as a Junior Clerk is really like...and a woman clerk at that!
In April last year, I wrote my first ever article looking at how our Chambers were adapting to working in lockdown. Never did I expect, a year and a half on, to be writing a follow up with those adaptations now a permanent foundation of our 'new normal'. The pandemic has pushed the Bar to the edge in many ways, particularly the Criminal Bar which was already under immense strain. In September 2020, I was honoured to be appointed Senior Clerk. It was a bitter sweet moment. The pride I felt as I received a flurry of congratulations was quickly over powered by a sense of trepidation and urgency, knowing that I had a mammoth task ahead.
