Civitas Law

Civitas Law Tenancy Opportunities

Civitas Law is the first specialist civil and public law set in Wales. There are 27 members of chambers with an equal balance between male and female and an even spread with regards to age, social background, state or private education and higher education. We are proud to be able to offer advisory, drafting and advocacy services in both English and Welsh. Former members of 33 Park Place, from which Civitas Law was formed, have included Lord Justice Watkins, Lord Justice Pill, Mr Justice Griffith Williams and Mr Justice Wyn Williams. Since retiring from the bench, Sir Wyn Williams has joined chambers as a mediator and arbitrator.

We take instructions from all regions throughout England and Wales. Within the sector, we have built an outstanding reputation for our public law and regulatory work, covering inquiries, court appearances and advisory work across all subsets of public, planning and administrative law. Additionally, we are noted as the pre-eminent set on circuit for civil and public law. Chambers also has a very robust personal injury and clinical negligence practice. We also provide true expertise in chancery & commercial, dispute resolution, environmental and employment law.

Chambers provides its services to central and the Welsh government, local authorities, a wide range of public bodies and solicitors in national and large firms to small and niche. Accordingly, members of chambers are well used to and are successful in making applications to join panels of approved and specialist counsel and the support team within chambers is well used to taking part in competitive tendering processes.

We are currently recruiting established civil practitioners to join our highly regarded Civil Team.
