At Crown Office Chambers we offer a well-structured and rewarding pupillage that will give you experience across a range of practice areas and prepare you for a career at the Bar. Pupillage will be undertaken in a friendly and supportive environment. Our members take a real interest in your progress.

Chambers offers up to 3 generously funded pupillages per year, which give you an opportunity to experience work across the range of chambers’ practice areas. In your second six you will have plenty of opportunities to appear in Court in your own right: from day one of your second six you can expect to be in the County Courts dealing with applications and small claims trials, before rapidly progressing to more complex matters.

Please follow the links on the left to learn more about what we offer. We hope that these pages answer any questions you may have about pupillage with us, but if you have any questions please visit our stand at the National Pupillage Fair at the Honourable Society of Gray’s Inn or contact the Pupillage Secretary Maurice Holmes.
