Chambers currently participates in the online pupillage applications scheme (Pupillage Gateway). Applications must be made through Pupillage Gateway except where an applicant is exempt under their rules.*  Consideration will be given to candidates wishing to defer an offer of pupillage for one year.

Applicants for pupillage should ordinarily have obtained (or expect to obtain) a first class degree.

All applications are read by a number of members of the Pupillage Committee in order to select candidates for interview.  Interviews are conducted by at least three members of the Pupillage Committee.

Chambers is committed to affording equality of opportunity to all applicants for pupillage and mini-pupillage.  Applications are assessed by objective criteria and in line with Chambers' Equality and Diversity Policy.  Chambers encourages and welcomes applications from women, people of minority ethnic origin, people with disabilities, LGBT+ people, and other groups under-represented at the commercial Bar.  Disabled applicants who would like to discuss reasonable adjustments to the application process are asked to contact the Secretary to the Pupillage Committee here.

Applicants who are exempt from the Pupillage Gateway rules may apply by sending full CVs to the Secretary to the Pupillage Committee, Chambers of Lord Grabiner QC, One Essex Court, Temple, London EC4Y 9AR.

Applicants who have questions about the process of application are encouraged to contact the Secretary to the Pupillage Committee who will seek to assist with any difficulties.
