Type of opportunity:
Maitland Chambers is a member of the Pupillage Gateway and applications for pupillage commencing in September 2022 should be made through the portal. Our typical recruit has a first class mind and a sense of commercial practicality, and will enjoy and be stimulated by the challenge of oral and written advocacy. Academically, we look for a first or upper second class degree and an aptitude and general enjoyment for complex legal argument. We welcome applications from both law and non-law graduates There is no limit to the number of tenancy offers we can make in each year; if you are of the requisite standard, you will be offered tenancy so our pupils are not in competition with one another. We are keen to broaden the diversity of our members and encourage candidates from all backgrounds to apply.
Mini-pupillage provides the opportunity to obtain experience of the work we do and the atmosphere in chambers. Visits are unassessed and unfunded, and last one day. Demand for places is high, but we try to accommodate as many applications as possible. We find that minipupils obtain the most from the experience if they come to Chambers after at least a year of an undergraduate law degree or, if they are converting to law, after they have started their GDL course. For application details and times, please visit our website.
