Pupillage & Recruitment
Chambers recruits pupils via the Pupillage Gateway. We are currently recruiting through the gateway.
Applications for pupillage for those with exemptions, reductions or waivers to the 12 month pupillage requirement are subject to special provision. Applicants may be considered without a pupillage vacancy having been advertised, and may be considered alongside or independently of recruitment via the Pupillage Gateway. Such applicants should, in the first instance, make enquiry of the Senior Clerk either in writing or by telephone. All such contact will be treated in the strictest confidence.
Formal applications, comprising a covering letter and CV should be made in writing, marked "Private and Confidential" to:
