Description
Fenners is looking for up to two 12 month pupils to commence in September 2021.

We are committed to providing diverse and well-rounded training to pupils.

The first six months of pupillage is divided into 3 2-month periods each of which is spent working in a different area of law. In addition, pupils are expected to carry out written work for other members of chambers, and go to court with them. We expect our pupils to work hard during their year, but to have time to enjoy themselves outside the law.

The second six months of pupillage is spent in supervised practice. In addition to undertaking their own work second-six pupils are expected to continue undertaking written work for members of chambers and to go to court with them when they can.

We carry out advocacy assessments based on criminal, family and civil exercises during the course of pupillage. Feedback is sought by the pupillage committee from all members of chambers and the clerks in advance of any decision on tenancy at the conclusion of pupillage. Most of our pupils have subsequently become members of chambers.
