No.18 Chambers Welcomes New Tenant – John Franklin (2016)

No.18 Chambers is delighted to announce that John Franklin (2016) has accepted an invitation to join Chambers following the successful completion of his Pupillage .  John will be joining our Civil &  Family team.

John joined chambers following successful completion of his pupillage in April 2018. John enjoys an extensive oral and written practice encompassing all aspects of civil and family law. John previously served as an engineer in the Royal Navy where he gained graduate and postgraduate science and engineering qualifications and became professionally registered as an Incorporated Engineer.   John converted to law in 2014 and gained a distinction for his Graduate Diploma in Law before going on to complete BPTC in 2016. He continued to study part-time throughout pupillage and is in the latter stages of the LPC MSc in Law, Business and Management.

His continuing studies have not only augmented his considerable legal knowledge and skills but also helped to consolidate many aspects of his practical training during pupillage. It also helped to provide with a unique insight into the business needs and practices of his instructing solicitors.

Before attaining pupillage, John worked as a solicitor’s agent appearing regularly in commercial, personal injury and housing matters.
