Henderson Chambers

About The Set

Henderson is a leading commercial and common law set, working with business and government on a wide range of legal issues. Much of chambers' work has an international element – something which is reflected in the month-long secondment that all its second six pupils take to a US law firm in Brussels.

Uniquely at the bar, Henderson has a dedicated pupillage website containing various videos and a detailed section on work experience and what it looks for in mini-pupils. This commitment to openness is illustrative of the set's wider culture, with even its hotshot QCs – among them one of the UK's foremost EU law experts, Sir Alan Dashwood QC – remaining down-to-earth and approachable.
