Description
Ashraf Law is a BSB Entity established in 2018.

We are looking for our first pupil for a near immediate start.

Ashraf Law specializes in Immigration and Crime. We have recently been involved in number of interesting Crown Court Cases.

The core practice area of the pupillage will be mixed in all areas of chambers practice, including Civil and Family.

This is a fantastic opportunity to train at a BSB entity with a growing reputation across multiple practice areas. Our accredited pupil supervisor has set up a comprehensive pupillage experience.

We assess pupillage candidates based on academic and intellectual abilities as well as oral and written communication skills. We assess each applicant’s understanding of and interest in our work. We welcome applications from law and non-law graduates alike.

Typical responsibilities

These will include, preparing a case for hearing, litigation, legal research, drafting documents such as opinions, advice, pleadings, skeleton arguments as well as a number of application for different areas of law such as Immigration Forms, Criminal Character Applications etc. Along the way pupils will experience conference and negotiation skills which are essential for a junior barrister. Pupils will most certainly be joining the pupil supervisor, and other barristers in court, and conferences. By working alongside all members of the practice, the pupil will benefit from varied feedback and insight in to a wide range of practice areas and working manners.

In the Second Sixth months’ pupils start to take on their own cases, usually in tribunals and the County Court/Magistrates.

Pupillage is not with a view to tenancy, and tenancy will be assessed purely on merit at the end of the pupillage term.
