Your pupillage application
Please note that for 2020 applications (for pupillage commencing in 2021), Fountain Court will require all applicants for pupillage to have completed a three day assessed mini-pupillage, save in exceptional circumstances. See further details on the mini-pupillage page of this website.
Applications for pupillage should be made through the Bar Council’s Pupillage Gateway, a central clearing house requiring you to complete a single, standard application form listing your choice of chambers for pupillage. If you are invited for an interview then at that stage we will ask you to arrange for 2 academic references to be sent to Chambers.
A timetable is available at the Pupillage Gateway. In 2020 (for pupillages commencing in 2021) it is expected that the deadline for applications will be in February 2020, with final round interviews anticipated to take place some time in April 2020.
We will be holding a Pupillage Open Evening in Chambers on the evening of 20 November 2019 to provide information and insights into careers at the Commercial Bar, pupillage at Fountain Court and the application process. Further information to follow.
