Make sure you know when to apply for pupillage. We've put together a list of deadlines for pupillage applications at top barristers' chambers in 2018 for pupillage starting in 2019.

Pupillage Gateway deadlines | Non-pupillage Gateway deadlines

For aspiring barristers, applying for pupillage can be both a stressful and exciting process. You'll need to think about which sets of chambers most appeal to you (consider their areas of practice, the atmosphere, the number of pupillages available and their pupil retention rate for starters) and then you'll need to make a note of the application deadlines.

Many chambers recruit through the centralised Pupillage Gateway system and will all have the same deadline at the beginning of February. Other chambers who do not recruit through this system may still use the same deadline. To make things simple, we've compiled a list below of all chambers’ pupillage application deadlines in the coming months. Click on the chambers’ name to see their online profile, which will tell you more about pupillage awards, practice areas and vacancies.

For those chambers whose deadlines have already passed, we recommend that you check back on their sites for the next pupillage opportunity. When checking application information be aware that the Pupillage Gateway system has had other names in the past and may be referred to as OLPAS (the online pupillage application system) or the pupillage portal. If you see these, or end up on the website www.pupillages.com, redirect yourself to the Pupillage Gateway.
