Description
Temple Tax Chambers continues its process of expansion and recruitment.

Applications for pupillage with a view to tenancy are invited from established tax practitioners. This category includes transferring solicitors, qualified accountants, chartered tax advisers, Revenue officers and trust and estate practitioners.

If you are applying for a tenancy but have yet to complete your training do please contact us and we will be happy to give an indication on tenancy and assist where we can with respect to pupillage and exceptions from the academic, vocational and professional stages of the Bar Training Rules.

There are special regulations which apply to transferring solicitors with the possibility of complete (for those with higher courts rights of audience) or partial exemption from the academic, vocational and professional stages of training. See the Bar Standards Board Handbook at Part 4 Section B, B7 rQ79 onwards.

Temple Tax Chambers welcomes applications for pupillage from practising solicitors or those completing their training contract. This is a well-established route into the Revenue Bar in general and Temple Tax in particular.

The qualities that we look for in transferring solicitors are the same as in any other established tax practitioner applicant and, consequently, we are seeking to identify those who have the potential over time to become top Revenue law barristers, able to develop the full range of skills of a successful Tax Counsel.

So we invite such candidates to apply by way of CV and detailed covering letter, including the names and contact details of two referees. Those applications should be made by email, addressed to the Head of Chambers michael.sherry@templetax.com and will be treated in the strictest confidence.
(It is possible that established practitioners including transferring solicitors may be able to start pupillage at a time other than the commencement date mentioned above.)
