Chambers offers up to two funded 12-month pupillages beginning in October each year. Pupillage is divided into three periods of four months on the basis that each pupil will have comprehensive exposure to all areas of Chambers’ work. There are regular seminars on wide-ranging areas of practice for pupils and junior tenants.
Chambers will fund pupils £25,000 per pupil per annum and earnings in second six.
These are offered throughout the year subject to availability. For application procedure, please refer to the mini-pupillage section of our website.
