Pupillage

Chambers subscribes to the Pupillage Gateway application scheme and currently offers two or three 18-month pupillages (6 months non-practising and 12 months practising). These are funded pupillages offering £9,000, payable in even amounts throughout the initial six-month period and £9,000, guaranteed earnings in the practising (second six-month) period. 3 Temple Gardens pupils do not pay rent or clerks' fees.

In addition, Chambers reimburse pupils for their travel expenses during the first six months and for travel outside Zone 6 during the second six up until the end of the 18 months. Chambers also pay for all mandatory Bar Council-run or approved courses (required for successful completion of pupillage).

Our selection process consists of two stages.

  1. All applications are assessed by the Pupillage Committee. Chambers is committed to encouraging a diverse and strong Criminal Bar and seeks to interview talented people from all backgrounds and walks of life.
  2. Those who impress are invited for interview. The interviews are designed to test the applicants' legal knowledge, analytical skills and judgement and include a short advocacy exercise.

Each 18-month pupil will be allocated four pupil supervisors in the year to ensure that a broad range of work, skills and styles are observed. 

Chambers runs in-house advocacy training throughout the year, conducted by tenants trained and accredited by their respective Inns of Court. These exercises are designed to help pupils in the areas most commonly experienced in their early days of practice.

We expect pupils to work hard and give 100% commitment; in return, Chambers undertakes to make pupillage a rewarding, enjoyable and challenging experience.

Chambers operates an Equality and Diversity Policy.
