Description
Cobden House Chambers is delighted to announce that it is now recruiting for a fully funded 12 month pupillage in our Criminal Department.

Please note that it is Chambers’ policy to offer pupillage with a view to tenancy.

The Criminal Department's principal areas of practice lie in the Crown Court, where members both prosecute and defend in all types of cases up to and including the most serious and high-profile of criminal trials. There is no geographical boundary, but most of the department's work lies within the Northern Circuit.

Individual members additionally specialise in appellate, inquest and regulatory work.

The department also accepts and undertakes both private and publicly-funded criminal and road traffic work in the magistrates' courts.

As a department, we believe that maintaining an ethos of high quality service and professionalism is entirely compatible with the preservation of a friendly and approachable working atmosphere.

The criminal pupillage will be geared to providing the successful candidate with training in and experience of all aspects of criminal practice, with a view to establishing a strong foundation for a successful career at the criminal bar.

Pupillage Award

Each pupil receives a total award of £25,000 comprising £9000 during the First Six and Guaranteed Earnings of £16,000 during the Second Six.

Timetable

The Closing Date for applications is 12.00 noon on 28th JANUARY 2019. First Round interviews will be held on Saturday 2nd March 2019 with Second Round interviews on Saturday 9th March 2019. The successful candidate will be notified shortly after the Second Round interviews.
