All applications for twelve-month pupillages must be made through the Pupillage Portal.
There are three stages to the selection process:
Application form Each application form is considered independently by three Members of Chambers.
1st Interview We invite around 40 applicants to attend for an initial interview which is short and relatively informal.
2nd Interview Around a third of those initially interviewed are invited back to chambers for a second interview. This interview is chaired by a silk, is longer and more rigorous.
We offer up to two funded twelve-month pupillages each year. These offers will be made in accordance with the appropriate timetable.
