Fountain Chambers has a vacancy for two pupils (one family and one criminal), to commence pupillage in October 2017. Please check the pupillage gateway for details. http://www.pupillagegateway.com
Mini-pupillage is the best way to find out about the day-to-day life of a barrister in private practice. A mini-pupillage at Fountain Chambers will give you an insight into life at the Common Law Bar. It is intended that most mini-pupillages will last for five days and that during that time a mini-pupil will have the opportunity to experience work with a number of tenants at all levels of seniority. Mini-pupils should generally have begun a law degree or intend to undertake a law conversion course. We regret that applications for mini-pupillage cannot be accepted from those under eighteen.
Applications for mini-pupillage will be considered at any time and should be made by way of a C.V. and covering letter, addressed to Mr Lewis Kerr, Mini-Pupillage.
Tenancy and Third Six
Fountain Chambers is actively looking to expand. Applications are always considered for tenancy and third six from strong candidates who have completed pupillage at other chambers.
Applicants should enclose a C.V., covering letter and any other information that would assist with consideration of their application addressed to Mr J Hill Q.C., Head of Chambers in an envelope marked ‘confidential’.
