Find out more



Recruitment of pupils is undertaken through the Pupillage Gateway.  Please indicate on your application form in which branch of Chambers you would like to do your pupillage.

Bertram Beor-Roberts, describes the application process:

“There are two rounds of pupillage interviews. The first is a short panel interview focusing on a legal problem. The second is an assessed mini-pupillage lasting for three days. Two days are spent with different members of chambers. The other is set aside for the candidate to draft a written opinion.

Inevitably, this is an intense process. Nevertheless, I felt that it was a realistic and detailed assessment. Over the course of the two rounds, I was asked to demonstrate both written and oral reasoning, legal knowledge, research skills and practical awareness. I had been assessed by several members of chambers and had two days to show my general attitude and approach to life as a pupil. Most importantly of all, I felt that if nothing else, I had at least been given a fair chance to prove myself.”
