Fountain Court Chambers is a leading set with a friendly, progressive and modern outlook. Members of Chambers are recognised as leaders in the fields of commercial and regulatory disputes acting for clients both in the UK and overseas.

Who We Are

As part of the ‘magic circle’, and with offices in London and Singapore, Fountain Court has 42 silks and 56 juniors specialising in a range of practice areas.

Chambers & Partners describe members at Fountain Court as “a really superb bunch of barristers”, whilst The Legal 500 comments that the set has “done a huge amount in recent years to promote and recruit women [which has made it] one of the most gender-diverse sets at the commercial bar.”

Why Fountain Court

  • Exposure to the most stimulating work

Pupils gain experience and work with members across all levels of seniority. Recent new tenants have even worked on Supreme Court cases with their supervisors.

  • Working with the brightest advocates

Pupillage at Fountain Court is an opportunity to work with some of the brightest and most successful advocates in London.

  • Pupils are not in competition with one another

We evaluate each pupil individually based on their own merit and all pupils who meet the relevant standard will be offered tenancy.

  • An inclusive and supportive culture

We have a friendly, progressive and modern outlook. We want the best people to join us, regardless of background, race, gender or sexual orientation.

  • First rate staffing support

As a leading set, we believe in providing the best service and our leading clerks and administrative team match the quality of our barristers.

Application details

We require you to complete a mini pupillage before applying for a pupillage and you should think about making an application the year before you intend to apply for pupillage. Applications for a mini pupillage should be made using the form available on the Fountain Court website. Applications for pupillage should be made through the Pupillage Gateway, a central clearing house for pupillage applications, which opens in January each year.
