Pupillage in Lamb Building

Lamb Building is a ‘non-OLPAS’ set. We have one recruitment round per year. Short-listed applicants are invited to a half-day session which normally includes three interviews and a written exercise.

We offer up to three funded 12-months pupillages each year. We aim to allocate supervisors who practise in the areas of particular interest to our pupils. A degree of flexibility is always maintained to ensure that each pupil gets maximum exposure to the range of work in chambers. Each pupil will receive a £7500 award in the first six months and guaranteed earnings of £7500 in the second six months. Second six month pupils can expect to be in court every day, undertaking mainly criminal work.

We are committed to equal opportunities in the training of our pupils and we operate a structured pupillage training programme.
