XXIV Old Buildings is a leading commercial chancery chambers of 45 members with broad domestic expertise and pre-eminence in international work.

The barristers at XXIV Old Buildings specialise in a variety of commercial chancery areas with a particular emphasis on trusts and estates and commercial litigation. Areas in which members regularly take instructions include arbitration; aviation; charities; civil fraud, asset tracing and recovery; company; construction; financial services; insolvency; international and offshore; partnership; pensions; professional negligence; real estate litigation and trusts, probate and estates.

XXIV Old Buildings is known for its pre-eminence in international and offshore work, both contentious and advisory. With offices in both London and Geneva, the barristers at XXIV Old Buildings regularly appear in courts and tribunals in offshore centres including the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Bermuda, Jersey, the Isle of Man, the DIFC, the Bahamas, Gibraltar, Hong Kong and Malaysia.

Each year we are looking for up to three pupils with a first or 2.1 degree, though not necessarily in law, who have an enthusiasm for the type of work we do, sound judgement and the application required to succeed in a very competitive and intellectually demanding environment.

We like to recruit our junior members from those who have undertaken pupillage with us. We are therefore careful that our pupils acquire all the skills necessary to make them successful commercial chancery barristers. During a 12-month pupillage, a pupil will have, on average, four pupil supervisors with whom they will spend the majority of their time.

Please see our website www.xxiv.co.uk for application details for pupillages commencing in October 2021. The deadline for applications is Monday 25 November 2019. Keep up to date with our dedicated twitter feed www.twitter.com/xxivpupillage.

Chambers offers mini-pupillages throughout the year. Each lasts on average three days. Our website also contains guidance on mini-pupillage applications.

Up to a quarter of the pupillage the award may (upon application) be drawn down during the BPTC.
