Pupillage – Overview

New Park Court Chambers accepts applications for pupillage through the Bar Council’s Pupillage Gateway – www.pupillagegateway.com We offer up to three pupillages per year, based either at Leeds or Newcastle, with a view to offering tenancy if pupillage is completed satisfactorily. Pupils are encouraged to gain experience in all areas of civil, family and criminal law practiced within Chambers during their pupillage year.

Our selection criteria include a minimum of a 2:1 degree level or equivalent. We appreciate that there may be mitigating circumstances for those who have failed to attain a 2:1 and these will be taken into account when appropriate evidence is included with the application.

The completion of a mini-pupillage in Chambers, whilst not essential, is of assistance to the Pupillage Committee when considering applications for pupillage. Those considering an application to New Park Court in the future are encouraged to apply for mini pupillage at an appropriate stage.
