Pupillage Applications - September 2022


Chambers attach great importance to training and recruitment, and our aim is to provide a broad based practical education to those who undertake pupillages here.

Our general policy is that pupils are taken on with a view to tenancy, so the selection and timing of pupillages is dependent on current needs and available work. We try to ensure that a pupil is given an opportunity to develop a practice during the second six stage and in early years of tenancy. As such we endeavour to maintain a flexible policy towards policy which is regularly under review.

The pupillage advertised is for commencement in September 2021 for a mixed pupillage civil/crime/family.

During the second six stage, a pupil can expect to receive a regular flow of work. The hard working and dedicated will quickly learn that a good attitude backed by solid training brings work in.

Our policy is that a funded pupillage will be no less than the minimum award recommended by the Bar Council. The pupillage award will take the form of a grant for the first six months of pupillage and a guarantee as to fees earned from instructions received in the second six months of pupillage.
