Magdalen Chambers in Exeter invites applications for two pupillages commencing in 2019.

Magdalen Chambers is the largest set in the south-west (south of Bristol) and is looking to expand further through the recruitment of outstanding pupils with the potential to become tenants.

Chambers intends to recruit one family and one civil pupil. Please be clear in your application which is your preferred area of specialism.

Pupils will be allocated one pupil supervisor but will be expected to spend time with other members in order to gain exposure to the different types of work that Chambers undertakes. In your second six, you will start to take on your own cases as well as continuing to undertake work with tenants.
