Foundry Chambers is recruiting two twelve-month pupils for a pupillage commencing in October 2021.

Foundry Chambers (formerly 9-12 Bell Yard) is one of the UK’s leading criminal sets. Our members prosecute and defend allegations of crime at every level and have appeared in some of the most high-profile criminal trials in recent years. Our expertise is wide-ranging and covers a number of areas of practice other than crime.

We aim to ensure that our pupils are exposed to as many areas of chambers’ practice as possible. This, coupled with our comprehensive advocacy training programme, allows pupils quickly to develop their own practices. We only offer pupillage to applicants we believe have the potential to become tenants at the end of 12 months; and we only offer as many pupillages as there are tenancy places.

Further information about our pupillage programme can be found on our website:

This year, we will not be recruiting via the Pupillage Gateway. Full details of our application process can be found on our website:
