Description
As a progressive and ambitious set of Chambers we are always looking at building for the future. We take pupillage seriously and offers of pupillage are made with a view to tenancy.

We are pleased to announce that we are offering one 12-month general common law pupillage to commence in October 2022. Unity Street Chambers offers the minimum pupillage award. A grant of £8,576 will be paid in monthly instalments in arrears during the first six months of pupillage and there are guaranteed minimum earnings of £8,576 during the second six months. We have found that pupils in recent years have earned well in excess of this figure.

The pupillage will be split into four three-month periods and you will have a different pupil supervisor for each period who will ensure that your training needs are met. During your first six months you will be expected to complete paperwork, advocacy exercises and to attend conferences and court appearances with members of Chambers across all levels of seniority and Chambers’ practice areas. This will prepare you for your second six months which will be spent undertaking your own court work in courts throughout the Western Circuit in all areas of Chambers’ work.
