Amita Chohan to complete pupillage

For the past six months Chambers has been hosting Amita Chohan who has been completing her ‘second-six’ as part of her English pupillage at Jersey-based law firm Baker & Partners. This has provided an excellent opportunity for the exchange of information and experience, with Amita experiencing English Chancery practice and Chambers deepening its offshore network and knowledge-base. Amita will shortly be returning as an Associate at Baker & Partners and 5SB wishes her good luck with her future career at the Bar.

Amita comments:

“I am grateful to all of the administrative staff, the clerks and the barristers (from junior to senior levels) at the set for having made me feel most welcome and for all of their support throughout my training. For me, the culture at the set has been a truly inviting and collegiate one where no question goes unanswered and there is no such thing as a silly question. This has complemented my progression during my second six.

Pure chancery work is by no means straightforward – every case is unique on its facts and gives rise to a number of slightly daunting and technically complex issues. I am very fortunate to have trained under the supervision of Edward Hewitt who has very diligently and patiently guided me through my second six and taken every opportunity to teach and mentor me pursuant to me approaching working on complex matters in as seamless a way as possible. Whilst my second six has been testing, I have relished every single challenge that I have been presented with and enjoyed my training, thoroughly.

Both Edward and all of the other practitioners that I have had the pleasure of working under the supervision of at 5 Stone Buildings have instilled an even greater sense of confidence in me as I prepare to pursue my dreams and kickstart my career as a practising English barrister. I look forward to maintaining my relationship with 5 Stone Buildings as I progress in the barrister profession.”
