Description
Queen Square Chambers is offering two 12-month general common law pupillage to commence in October 2022 with funding of £25,000 per pupil. This consists of a grant of £10,500 in first six and guaranteed earnings of £10,500 in second six. The remaining £4,000 of the award is available to pupils on 1st August 2022 in order to assist with any relocation costs to Bristol.

Chambers is located in Bristol and our members are instructed in cases nationwide, with a particular focus on the Western and Wales and Chester Circuits.

During pupillage you can expect to have 3 pupil supervisors each for a four-month period. Alongside the Western Circuit advocacy training, Chambers provides its own advocacy assessments to best prepare you for second six as well as comprehensive feedback on all written work.

Once you start your second six you can expect a busy and varied diary in all areas of Chambers work. Alongside Magistrates Court work, recent pupils have been instructed in Crown Court matters, Family proceedings, Fast Track trials and Employment Tribunals. New tenants have been able to build upon this platform of mixed work to forge successful practices, often exceeding the levels of their contemporaries in London.

Chambers only offers pupillage with a view to tenancy and since 2015 has had 11 pupils, all of whom have been taken on as tenants. The tenancy decision is usually made within one month before the completion of pupillage.
