We recognise that pupillage is an important stage of a barrister's career.
It is an opportunity to develop the skills which the pupil will use throughout his or her career, to observe others putting those skills into practice, and in the second six months' of pupillage, to begin utilising those skills themselves.
We firmly believe that the emphasis of a pupillage in Chambers should be on the pupil's development as a barrister. Our pupillages are, we hope, designed to achieve this goal.
We also recognise that securing a tenancy is an important aim for most of our pupils. It has been a long-standing policy of Chambers to recruit our junior tenants from those who have successfully completed pupillage with us. For this reason, we recruit pupils with the potential to become first-class advocates who we hope will remain with us as tenants for many years.
