Barrister opportunities at Morgan Sports Law

Most of the firm’s work is heard before the Court of Arbitration for Sport, other sports disciplinary tribunals around the world and the High Court. The firm already has one in-house barrister, whose role is primarily focused on assisting with written and oral advocacy. Due to an increased caseload, we are recruiting another in-house barrister to assist with the firm’s written and oral advocacy. All of the firm’s written submissions are drafted in-house, and successful applicants would be heavily involved in that process.
