- The Pupillage starting in 2025 requires that the applicant will start the bar Professional course in 2024, complete it and pass with a ‘very competent’ or above before the start date in 2025.
During the BTC training course year, the successful candidate will receive mentoring and support from chambers, will be invited to chambers events and will be encouraged to make major contributions to chambers online Family and Court of Protection Newsletters.
Our specialist and bespoke pupillage training programme is designed to ensure that by the end of their training, chambers’ pupils are able to securely satisfy all the competencies set out in the Bar Professional Statement, such that on commencement of pupillage itself our pupils work with a wide range of practitioners, so that they can be assessed widely across chambers, whilst being allocated one overall pupil supervisor.
The training and opportunities provided are of the highest quality, which ensures that pupils may move seamlessly into tenancy with busy and successful practices; having been nurtured in a warm and welcoming chambers’ environment. All pupils have access to the best specialist clerking services to ensure the right exposure to instructing solicitors, as well as full administrative support.
