Your pupillage will be for twelve months. You will have one assigned pupil supervisor at any given time. We place great worth on training a pupil how to learn the principles of managing a practice and learning how to interact with clerks and solicitors and also to manage both lay and professional client expectations. We will train you to seek out detail and be precise in how you problem solve, never forgetting the need for creativity within the process of developing commercial solutions that are real as well as realistic. Our first year tenants can expect to receive in excess of £50,000 in their first year of practice. This figure illustrates the volume and quality of the commercial work that Chambers services for its clients.
