New Park Court Chambers is one of the premiere sets in the North East. We are home to a number of the leading practitioners raised from within our own ranks. It is a tradition we take pride in and wish to continue.

To that end we are offering two pupillages (one based in principally in Leeds and one based principally in Newcastle) to begin in September 2020 to two outstanding candidates. The pupillage will guarantee a comprehensive well supported common law education, which will include an introduction and grounding in serious crime and regulatory enforcement. An education which has proved successful in our recent recruitment, development and expansion.

We are a supportive set, keen to develop the individual and promote diversity.

The pupil will be financially supported by an award in line with current Bar Council recommendations and the Living Wage Foundation.

The closing date for submission of applications is 7th February 2019. Candidates will be notified of our decision on 29th March 2019.
