Each year we are looking to make offers to at least 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 for application details for pupillages commencing in 2025. We will be adhering to the Pupillage Gateway timetable this year. Keep up to date with our dedicated twitter feed

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.
