We are currently inviting applications for a third six pupil who wishes to practise in all of our core practice areas. Actual experience at the Bar in all of our areas is not essential for an application, but we are seeking candidates who can demonstrate broad analytical and advocacy abilities, sound judgement and a genuine desire to develop a mixed practice. We are seeking to expand the number of junior tenants owing to a growing portfolio of work in numerous fields.
We envisage that the successful applicant will start with us in September/October with our two 12-month pupils, but that is flexible and subject to alternative agreement. No financial award is offered, but during the period of the third six pupillage no chambers rent will be levied. Third six pupils are responsible for obtaining and maintaining adequate insurance (at least £1m of cover) through Bar Mutual whilst practising at 9 Gough Square.
The ‘third six’ pupillage will run from the commencement date until a tenancy decision in July 2020. The third six pupil will (upon application) be considered for tenancy alongside our 12-month pupils.
To apply, please send a C.V. and a covering letter, specifying the names of two referees (or attaching references if they are already obtained), to Claire Harden-Frost at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be treated in strict confidence.
We operate an equal opportunity recruitment policy and encourage applications from candidates from all backgrounds regardless of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, marital status, religion or disability.
Owing to the changing nature of applicants’ situations, there is no formal deadline for applications; and we may offer the third six pupillage to a preferred candidate at any time. Interviews will be arranged at the mutual convenience of applicants and interviewers, likely on weekday evenings; reasonable adjustments will be made where practicable.
