We offer two 12-month pupillages each year, with a view to taking on both pupils as tenants at the end of their time with us. Importantly, our pupils are not in competition with one another for a tenancy, but are assessed solely on their own abilities and performance.
We look for pupils with high intellectual ability, good communication skills and an interest in commercial chancery work.
You should be mature and confident, have the ability to work with others and be able to analyse legal problems well, demonstrating commercial and practical good sense.
It is our policy to offer pupillage only to those candidates whom we consider to possess real potential to join us as tenants at the end of their pupillage. This means that we set high selection standards, take great care in our selection process and put a great deal of effort into providing an excellent pupillage. We carry out a process of continual assessment to determine the suitability of pupils as tenants rather than a separate, formal assessment procedure at the end of the pupillage.
We choose to manage the application and selection process ourselves and are not members of the Pupillage Portal.
We have a minimum requirement of a 2.1 degree in law or another subject and have a track record of taking on GDL students, as well as undergraduate law students, as pupils and tenants.
