15 New Bridge Street Chambers
Chambers of Martin Rutherford QC
2 x 12 month Pupillage (October 2022, April 2023)

15 New Bridge Street is a leading set of chambers on the South Eastern Circuit, specialising in criminal and regulatory work, providing representation at every level. Chambers will be offering two criminal pupillages starting in October 2022 and April 2023, respectively.

What we offer
We offer a first class pupillage which provides pupils with the breadth and depth of experience needed for a successful career at the Criminal Bar. We pride ourselves on ensuring that pupils are well supervised and supported throughout their pupillage.

Pupillage at 15 New Bridge Street is divided into four periods (two three-month periods in the first six and two three-month periods in the second six) each of which are spent with a different supervisor. Pupils will be expected to produce work for other members of Chambers throughout the year and will receive in-house advocacy training, starting in the first six.

We are looking for the brightest graduates from any university to fill our pupillage places, but we do not exclude anyone purely on the basis of their class of degree. We look for personality, all-round ability and commitment as well as considering your academic record. We are an equal opportunities employer.

Financial Support

The pupillage award for 2022 is £19, 144 in accordance with the London Living Wage as prescribed by the Bar Standards Board. This is by way of a grant of £9, 572 for the first ‘non-practising’ six months and guaranteed earnings of £9, 572 during the second ‘practising’ six months.

In addition, Chambers pays for the continuing education courses for which pupils are required to undertake during pupillage and for travel costs outside of London.
