Pupillage

As a progressive and ambitious set of Chambers we are always looking at building for the future. We take pupillage seriously and offers of pupillage are made with a view to tenancy.

We are pleased to announce that we are offering one 12 month general common law pupillage commencing October 2019. Pupillage attracts a grant of £6,000 paid in monthly instalments during the first six months of pupillage and guaranteed minimum earnings of £6,000 during the second six months. We have found that pupils in recent years have earned well in excess of this figure.

All applications should be made by way of CV and covering letter and should be addressed to The Pupillage Secretary, Unity Street Chambers, 5 Unity Street, BS1 5HH
Applications are to be received by 4pm on 7 February 2018 and successful candidates will be invited to interview between February – April 2018. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.
