Choosing pupillage is a difficult decision. If you are interested in pursuing a career at the Bar specialising in Family Law then 29 Bedford Row may well be the ideal choice for you. We are a long established set and a recognised leader in our field offering excellent training for pupils in all areas of Family Law during pupillage and a highly competitive award. 

Up to two 12 month pupillages are available annually with awards of up to £35,000. Applicants should generally have at least an upper second class degree. Pupillage will normally be spent with three pupil supervisors and all pupils are encouraged to attend court with other members of chambers in order to gain first-hand experience in all our areas of expertise. Pupils can expect to be in court (and earning) on a regular basis during their second six months. 

Chambers is a member of the Bar Council’s Pupillage Gateway for pupillage commencing in October 2018. Chambers advertises all vacancies for 12 month pupillages at www.pupillagegateway.com. Applications should be submitted in accordance with the Pupillage Gateway timetable.
