Selection process

All applications for twelve-month pupillages must be made through the Pupillage Portal.

There are three stages to the selection process:

  1. Each application form is considered independently by at least three members of Chambers.

  2. We invite around 40 applicants to attend for an initial interview, which is short and relatively informal.

  3. Around a third of those initially interviewed are invited back to chambers for a second interview. This interview includes an advocacy exercise, which candidates will be given time to prepare prior to the interview commencing.

We offer up to two funded twelve-month pupillages each year. These offers will be made in accordance with the appropriate timetable.
