Pupillage applications are now open.

Pupillage at Senate House Chambers

At Senate House Chambers we’re a modern, provincial set, which takes on a vast quantity of high quality work. From the Heads of Chambers to the newest junior tenants, our advocates are held in remarkably high esteem.
We are rightly proud of our levels of service –

  • high quality advocacy
  • rigorous preparation
  • thorough reporting following hearings
  • committed representation at every stage

We’re committed to quality service and the training of top-quality advocates.
Furthermore, we’re also famously approachable. We offer a friendly, practical and down-to-earth environment in which to complete pupillage. We don‘t shy away from insisting that our pupils have to be dedicated in their work. This is a pre-requisite for all our prospective tenants.

As a new set of Chambers, we’re determined to flourish and to build upon the reputation established by our founding members – a reputation for the highest quality advocacy, approachability, client focus and professionalism.

Pupillage is very important to us; we take a serious, long-term view. Our goal is to offer tenancy following successful completion. A growing corps of junior tenants is key to our continued progression. We award tenancy on merit only to those who have demonstrated the necessary skill and commitment to succeed.

The joy of pupillage at Senate House Chambers means you are not competing with others for a single place. We do not believe in taking on multiple pupils to service our work only to be tossed aside after months of dedication. For us, Pupillage is an investment in our future – one that we are determined to continue for many years to come.

How to Apply:

Senate House Chambers advertises for pupillage through the Pupillage Gateway system.

We usually recruit for pupillage starting in April and October. Applications are by way of a covering letter and CV (complete with referees), marked for the attention of our Pupillage Committee. Applications for pupillage are now open and will close at 5pm on 29th March 2019. Successful candidates will be shortlisted for interview and notified by 2nd April 2019. First round interviews will take place on Saturday 6th April 2019 in Chambers.

Candidates should have a minimum 2:1 at degree level and should be fully competent in the BPTC. However, in exceptional circumstances, we’ll consider candidates without this level of qualification.
