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 competitive awards.
Two 12 month pupillages are available annually with awards of up to £25,000. 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 fields of expertise. Pupils can expect to be in court on a regular basis during their second six months.
Any major policy decisions which arise in connection with pupillage at 29 Bedford Row are dealt with by Chambers as a whole. However, all other matters (in particular, selection of pupils) are dealt with by the Pupillage Committee. The committee consists of seven members of Chambers representing a cross-section of Chambers. Its members are of varying levels of seniority (including one QC) and have differing areas of practice. Three members of the committee are female.
