ABSTRACT
The article reports on the recent development in practice of law in Great Britain. Applicants face tough task to satisfy silk selection criteria. Then again, when those applicants take a serious look at exactly what competencies have to be demonstrated to a standard of excellence, they may decide life, as a senior junior is not so bad after all. How many barristers can demonstrate an understanding of diversity and cultural issues--most importantly for the commercial bar-- possess sufficient advocacy experience to meet the criteria? One senior commercial junior on the cusp of silk argues that it is virtually impossible for him and his peers at the commercial bar to gain the requisite advocacy experience, as most have a heavy paper-based practice and in major complex cases will always be led.
