About 2 Temple Gardens
2TG is regarded as one of the leading commercial and civil law barristers’ chambers. The chambers specialises in professional negligence, property damage, insurance and personal injury and also has significant practices in employment, technology, product liability, sport and clinical negligence, alongside strength in private international law.
Academically, you will need at least a high 2:1 degree to be considered. Chambers look for applicants who work well in teams and have the ability to get on with solicitors, clients and other members of chambers.
Chambers offers one of the most generously funded, well-structured and enjoyable pupillages at the Bar. It takes pupillage very seriously and aims to recruit the best applicants, and to ensure that its pupils have an excellent foundation from which to start a successful career at the Bar. Pupils have three different pupil supervisors during pupillage, and will also do work for other members of chambers. The aim is for pupils to experience as much of chambers’ work as possible during their pupillage year.
Mini-pupillage is the best way to get a feel for life at 2TG. Chambers offers 12 minipupillages per year in three set weeks. Mini-pupillages are 3 days long and during that time you will see a range of barristers’ work. You will be asked to undertake an assessed piece of work and a short interview at the conclusion of the mini-pupillage. Please note that applicants will only be considered after their first year of a law degree or during CPE. The best time to do a mini-pupillage is in the year or so prior to applying for pupillage. Details of dates can be found on our website. Applications are accepted via the website by completing the online form.
2TG Open Day Chambers also offers students an opportunity to learn more about 2TG at an Open Day. Further details can be found on our website.
Funding Chambers offers up to three 12-month pupillages, all of which are funded. Its pupillage award for 2019 is £70,000. Please see our website for details of the award.
