Description
We are a civil law set based next to the Royal Courts of Justice. We cover a range of practice areas including public law, professional discipline and regulatory, commercial and construction law.

We offer a friendly and relaxed professional environment and the opportunity to have a good work-life balance.

Pupillage will entail carrying out legal research, drafting pleadings and advice, attending conferences and attending court in order to gain experience of the court system. During second six, pupils can expect to be in court on a regular basis. You will receive regular feedback on your work.

The pupillage award will be £19,000 comprising of £10,000 in the first six months of pupillage and guaranteed earnings of £9,000 in the second six months of pupillage. Pupils can reasonably expect their earnings to exceed the minimum of award in their second six.

Our expectation is that pupillage will lead to an offer of tenancy.
