Chambers accepts applications for Pupillage through the Pupillage Gateway. Please go to www.pupillagegateway.com
Chambers looks to recruit pupils who display the following qualities:
- Commitment to criminal law
- Sound academic background
- Persuasive in both written and oral argument
- Passion and flair for advocacy
In selecting our pupils, 2 Bedford Row has a 2 stage interviewing process. The first round interview is a 10 - 15 minute informal interview conducted by a small panel of tenants. This interview aims to get to know you better and questions are generally based on your application form.
If invited for a second round interview, the candidate will be given an advocacy exercise to perform e.g. a plea in mitigation. This will be followed by a more rigorous and demanding 20 minute interview, conducted by a larger panel of tenants.
How Pupillage works
2 Bedford Row offers 4 funded pupillages per annum. Pupils will receive a total of £22,000 over the course of their twelve months in Chambers. This will be made up of a Grant of £12,000, payable in instalments over 12 months and guaranteed 2nd six earnings of £10,000
Each pupil will have two pupil supervisors in their first six, and a different two in their second six. This system ensures that all pupils get exposed to as many different types of work as possible and aims to provide each pupil with a thorough grounding in a broad range of criminal and regulatory practice.
We aim to recruit tenants from our own pool of pupils. Applications for tenancy are usually made after the completion of a third six. Those who have not been successful have almost invariably found a tenancy in good chambers elsewhere.
Third Six Pupillage Applications
Chambers is actively seeking third six pupils with a view to interviewing candidates in late September. Applications should be sent to Eleanor Sanderson at firstname.lastname@example.org, and should consist of a CV and covering letter. Paper applications cannot be accepted. All 3rd six pupils are eligible to apply for tenancy on completion of their 3rd six.
Chambers welcomes applications for mini-pupillage. Please email your CV with covering letter to Jonas Milner at email@example.com. Priority is given to applications from undergraduates and above and should be made at least 6 months in advance. In the case of placements during university vacations you are advised to apply more than 6 months in advance. Please do not apply if you are under 18 years of age.
