How is pupillage structured?

Your pupillage will be spent with three (or, in some years, four) supervisors who practise in a range of Chambers' practice areas.  You will also find yourself doing work for, or attending Court and conferences with, other members of Chambers.  This will enable you to undertake work in a variety of areas, across the spectrum of our expertise.

In your first six you will:

  • attend Court and conferences with your supervisor and other members of Chambers
  • undertake legal research, draft pleadings and prepare advices for your supervisor
  • complete a written assessment
  • attend Chambers’ advocacy training and assessments

Your second six stands in stark contrast to this: advocacy is at the heart of our practice, and your second six is designed to give you a wide range of advocacy experience.  In your second six you will:

  • be in Court 2-3 days a week
  • appear in small claims trials and applications before progressing to fast track trials
  • complete a second written assessment
  • still carry out paperwork for your supervisor and other members of Chambers
