DWF Advocacy Ltd is looking for three general civil pupil barristers to commence on 4th May 2020. The core practice areas will be Personal Injury, Occupational Health, Costs and general insurance litigation.

It is envisaged that two pupils will be based in Manchester (1 Scott Place, 2 Hardman Street, Manchester, M3 3AA) and one in Leeds (Bridgewater Place, 1 Water Ln, Leeds LS11 5DY) although the exact division may be altered depending on candidate and business preference.

This is a fantastic opportunity to train at an increasingly international organization with a growing reputation across multiple practice areas. DWF Advocacy Ltd currently has around 25 employees, including 7 barristers. Our accredited pupil supervisors, themselves externally trained, have set up a comprehensive pupillage experience – full details of our pupillage policy can be found at
