Pupillage 2018 – 2019 and 2019-2020


Nexus invites applications for four 12-month pupillages:

• One 12-month pupillage commencing April 2018;

• One 12-month pupillage commencing October 2018;

• One 12-month pupillage commencing April 2019; and

• One 12-month pupillage commencing October 2019.

Applicants much specify for which of these pupillages they wish to be considered (whether that is one of them, more than one of them, or all of them).

We encourage applications from suitably qualified candidates, including those yet to undertake the BPTC. Applicants must be able to demonstrate:

  • educational achievement;
  • hard work and enterprise;
  • advocacy ability or potential;
  • a commitment to chambers’ practice areas;
  • a desire to join a growing and forward-looking set.

Our pupillage awards comprise £7,000 for the first six months with guaranteed minimum earnings of £7,000 during the second six months. Pupils can expect to earn substantially more than the guaranteed minimum during second six.

We do not receive applications through the Pupillage Gateway; applications should instead be made on our applications form, which can be downloaded here.
