Our 2024 & 2025 Pupillages:

This year we are pleased to be offering four 12-month pupillages via the Pupillage Gateway.

  • We are offering two criminal pupillages commencing in October 2025. Our criminal pupils will acces a varied training programme, with an opportunity to be supervised by members across our core areas of: crime, extradition, proceeds of crime & asset forfeiture and with some access to our professional discipline work.
  • We are also offering a family pupillage to commence in October 2024 and another family pupillage to follow in October 2025.

Financial Award:

  • Our pupillage award will be £40,000, which is made up of a grant of £20,000 in the first six months and a guaranteed income of £20,000 in the second six months. 
  • Successful pupils can apply to ‘draw down’ a proportion of the grant to assist with their Bar Course or other pupillage-related costs.
