Award pupillages are generally offered to candidates of high academic achievement who are considered to have the potential to become tenants at Fountain Court. Successful candidates tend to have a first class degree or its equivalent.
Fountain Court is a member of Pupillage Gateway.
Mini pupillages are available in three periods: March/April, June/July and December.
For the 2017 Gateway pupillage applications round, it will not be a requirement for pupillage applicants in 2017 (for pupillage starting in 2018) to have completed an assessed mini-pupillage.
The mini-pupillages will last two days, during which time you will sit with one or two members and learn about life at Fountain Court Chambers. Although the mini-pupillage will not be formally assessed or be a precondition to taking part in the application process for 2018 pupillages, applicants for pupillage are strongly encouraged to apply for a mini-pupillage. We will pay £150 towards your expenses upon completion of your mini-pupillage.
For the 2018 pupillage application round onwards, mini-pupillages will be assessed and a required part of the pupillage application process at Fountain Court. Assessed mini-pupillages will last three days, during which time a piece of written work will be submitted as part of your pupillage application. Fountain Court will pay £200 towards expenses upon completion of your mini-pupillage.
To apply please email the application form, which can be found on the website, to Lucy Scutt at email@example.com.
