Two new pupils for Exchange Chambers
October 1, 2014
Exchange Chambers is delighted to welcome two new pupils to Chambers.
Joining as a common law pupil is Katie Ayers. Katie graduated from Worcester College, Oxford, in 2009 with a degree in philosophy, psychology and physiology. After a year of travel, she worked as an investment banking analyst at NM Rothschild & Sons in the City. She converted to law at BPP in Manchester last year, where she achieved a distinction in the GDL. She was awarded a major GDL scholarship and the Denise Pannick Award for the BPTC, and this year Gray’s Inn also awarded her an internship scholarship to enable a team of six Inn students to participate in the Willem C Vis International Arbitration Moot in Vienna.
Joining as a commercial pupil is David Williams. David studied history and French at the University of York and l’Université de Provence Aix-Marseille. After graduating in 2010, he worked as a researcher at the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales and then spent two years in the chemical industry. He converted to law at BPP in Waterloo, and completed the BPTC in Nottingham earlier this year.
Said Tom Handley, Director of Chambers at Exchange Chambers:
“The standard of applications was higher than it has ever been this year. Katie and David were the outstanding candidates and both have the potential to build hugely successful careers at the Bar.”
