Description
Fenners is looking for up to two 12 month pupils to commence in September 2020.

We are committed to providing diverse and well-rounded training to pupils. Pupillage is divided into four 3-month periods spent with different pupil supervisors practising in different areas of law. In addition, pupils are expected to carry out written work for other members of chambers, and go to court with them. We expect our pupils to work hard during their year, but to have time to enjoy themselves outside the law.

We carry out advocacy assessments based on criminal, family and civil exercises during the course of pupillage. Feedback is sought by the pupillage committee from all members of chambers and the clerks in advance of any decision on tenancy at the conclusion of pupillage. Most of our pupils have subsequently become members of chambers.

How to apply
Applications should be made using the Fenners Pupillage Application Form which can be downloaded from the recruitment page of the website: http://www.fennerschambers.com/recruitment.

Applications should be sent to pupillage@fennerschambers.com by the deadline which is 4pm on 25th January 2019.
