Applications for pupillage are now open. We are offering one pupillage commencing Spring 2020 and a pupillage commencing Autumn 2020. This is subject to available funding and a suitable candidate. Chambers aim to inform the successful candidates by 28 February 2020.

College Chambers has 27 tenants and is a general common law set, with an emphasis on family and civil work. Full details of the work undertaken can be found on our website. Applicants should be aware that very little criminal work is undertaken by members of Chambers. Funding is by way of a grant of £7,864 payable monthly during the First VI, and guaranteed earnings of a minimum of £7,864 during the Second VI. However our second six pupils expect to earn significantly more than this.

How to apply
All applications should take the form of a typed letter (maximum 1 side of A4 and minimum font size 11), and curriculum vitae (maximum 2 sides of A4) and be sent to Neil Maton, Head of Pupillage. Applications by e-mail are NOT accepted. The closing date is the 9th December 2019. Applicants should ensure there are 3 copies of their letter and CV enclosed. Please note it will be the applicant’s responsibility to show that their application was received by the closing date.

Applications will not be acknowledged upon receipt, but it is hoped that all candidates will be contacted by end of December to inform them as to the progress of their application.

If an applicant has previously applied for pupillage with College Chambers this must be highlighted in your application, and only those who can demonstrate a significant change in circumstances will be reconsidered. Please ensure any changes are outlined in the covering letter.

In addition, we are now required by the Bar Standards Board to undertake equality and diversity monitoring in respect of all pupillage applications. We would therefore appreciate it if this could filled in. The monitoring form can be found on the pupillage page of our website. This should be submitted with the application. The equality and diversity form will be separated from their application immediately upon receipt.
