Who should apply
We are looking for a potential tenant. Candidates should have a real enthusiasm for our areas of practice, be of proven high academic ability and possess excellent powers of analysis, reasoning and presentation. In addition, the successful candidate will demonstrate sound judgement and be highly motivated. Our specific selection criteria are set out on our website and application form.
The pupillage is structured so that our pupil can see the full range of chambers’ work. Our pupil will have two pupil supervisors throughout the 12 months and will sit with two other members of chambers, under the supervision of their supervisor. It is also likely that, throughout the pupillage, our pupil will undertake work for other members of chambers. Monitoring of a pupil’s progress takes place at the end of work through discussion with their pupil supervisor and through monthly written reviews, rather than by way of formal assessment.
How and when to apply
The deadline for applying for pupillage commencing October 2019 is 10 January 2018. Applications must be made on chambers' application form, which will be available from chambers' website or from the clerks' room from mid-November 2017. Shortlisted candidates will be invited for interview, will spend a day in chambers and will be asked to prepare a piece of written work.
We offer one 12 month pupillage.
Apply by application form, available on the website or from the clerks’ room. Deadlines are 7 January, 15 July and 15 October.
£60,000, with the option of drawing down up to a quarter in the year prior to pupillage.
