Trinity Chambers is committed to providing excellent professional training in all of its practice areas, coupled with a comprehensive introduction to life at the Bar. Trinity Chambers offers two 12 month pupillages each year: one commencing in April and one in October. Pupils will have the opportunity to see a wide range of specialist work.

Trinity Chambers has a reputation for recruiting highly-motivated, commercially aware pupils with a temperament that fits into our collegiate environment. Successful candidates will have a strong academic record coupled with the first-rate interpersonal skillset required to succeed at the Bar.

Pupillage Programme

Our pupils are encouraged to hone their skills in a stimulating, exciting and supportive environment that will see them fulfil their potential. They will be exposed to the practices of at least two pupil supervisors and, from time to time, other members of Chambers.

In addition to accompanying members of Chambers to court and joining them in conference, our pupils will frequently be undertaking legal research; settling pleadings; drafting opinions, skeleton arguments and schedules, whilst generally being involved in the day-to-day life of Chambers and the local circuit.

During their second-six our pupils are extremely busy with their own caseload, typically appearing in court on a daily basis undertaking work across the full spectrum of Chambers’ practice areas.

Funding

We offer funding for each pupil by way of (i) a tax free grant payable in the first-six; and (ii) guaranteed earnings during the second-six, which our pupils almost invariably exceed.

The level of the pupillage award/guaranteed earnings is reviewed annually and will be published in Chambers’ advertisements for pupillage.

Applications

Trinity Chambers is not a member of the Pupillage Gateway Scheme although vacancies for pupillage will be advertised on the Pupillage Gateway website in accordance with the BSB Requirements.

Applications for pupillage will only be considered during advertised periods, when applicants may apply to The Pupillage Committee by way of email to pupillageapplications@trinitychambers.com using the applicant’s name as the subject heading, attaching a covering letter and up-to-date CV.

Applicants are invited return a completed diversity monitoring questionnaire with their application.

Although not a pre-requisite to pupillage, prospective applicants are encouraged to apply for mini-pupillage with Chambers.

Equality and Diversity

Trinity Chambers has a firm commitment to and diligently operates an Equal Opportunities policy. For further information please contact Keith Willmore, our Senior Clerk.
