If yes, a key component to training is securing a Pupillage. Most Chambers recruit via the centralised system known as the Pupillage Gateway. The Pupillage Gateway was opened on 28 November 2018 to enableÂ prospective applicants to browse all approved Gateway pupillage vacancy advertisements. A number of Chambers do not recruit through the Gateway and adverts are live all year around. During this period, applicants will have access to an online practice application form to help them in their preparations.
The submission period for pupillage via The Gateway opens on 7 January 2019 and closes on 7 February 2019. So this is an ideal time to gain insight into the opportunities and prepare draft applications.
