We aim to ensure that pupils have a rewarding and enjoyable experience of pupillage and have a wide range of experienced pupil supervisors in all areas of practice. Pupils can expect to feel a valued part of the chambers’ team and enjoy all that a life at the Bar entails. All members aim to be approachable and supportive to our pupils and junior tenants. As an example of our commitment to our pupils, no rent is payable to chambers during pupillage or the first few months of tenancy.
Pupillages are offered with a view to tenancy provided all requirements are met.

As a result of our multi-disciplinary approach pupils can expect to experience a variety of practice areas during their pupillage year but we will endeavor to tailor your placements to your expressed interests. Within your second six you will enjoy a varied caseload. Experience shows this to be a busy and stimulating time for our pupils. Chambers places an emphasis on supporting and encouraging all our pupils and junior tenants.

Chambers would generally expect all applicants to have achieved at least a 2.1 degree and to have achieved or be on course for at least a ‘very competent’ on the BPTC, but we are always prepared to consider candidates without this level of qualification in exceptional circumstances.

9 Park Place complies with the Bar Standards Board pupillage requirements, is an equal opportunities employer and we are committed to ensuring that all our selection processes are fair.
