Pendragon Chambers welcomes applications for up to 2 pupillages to begin in 2022 at a mutually agreed time. Pendragon is a friendly, very busy and growing set specialising in family and civil law. In the past 5 years we have taken on 6 new tenants including all four of our pupils. Based in Swansea we accept instructions nationwide although primarily across south, west and mid wales and Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Bristol. Pupils will specialise in all aspects of family law and will also have the opportunity of developing a practice in personal injury, chancery and commercial law. Pupils will receive a first-class training, close support from not only pupil supervisors but also a separately appointed mentor and from recent pupils who play an active role in the process. Pendragon Chambers are looking for highly able, self-motivated people who are keen to quickly build up a practice on the Wales and Chester Circuit.

Pupils receive a grant of £8150.00 in the first six months with guaranteed earnings of £23,000 in the second six months although recent pupils have earned in excess of this figure.
