Pupillage 2018 – 2019 and 2019 – 2020

Our pupillage applications are now closed. All first-round interviewees have now been contacted and invited for interview so if you have not heard from us we regret that you will not be invited for interview this year. We have received an enormous number of applications; it has been an incredibly competitive process this year so please do not be disheartened or deterred from applying again in the future if you have not been successful this year.

We request that applicant’s please download, complete, and return our Pupillage Recruitment Diversity & Equality Monitoring Form which can be downloaded here:

We regret that we are unable to provide feedback to applicants who have been unsuccessful at the paper-sift stage.
For those who have been invited for interview, the timetable is set out below. Applicants are asked to ensure that they will be available on these dates as we are usually unable to accommodate individual requests for a change in timetable.
  • First round interviews will take place at Nexus Chambers on the evenings of Monday 5th, Tuesday 6th, and Thursday 8th March 2018;
  • By Friday 9th March 2018, second round interviewees will be notified of the date and time of their second round interview;
  • Second round interviews will take place at Nexus Chambers in the week commencing 19 March 2018 (dates and times to be confirmed); and
  • By Monday 26 March 2018, offers of pupillage will be made.
