Pupillage in Lamb Building

Lamb Building conducts an application process outside of the Pupillage Gateway. Full details and an application form can be found below. We have one recruitment round per year. Shortlisted applicants are invited to a half day session which normally consists of 3 interviews, including a short advocacy exercise and a written exercise.

We offer up to three funded 12 months pupillages each year. Successful candidates can expect to be allocated supervisors who practise in the areas of particular interest to our pupils. A degree of flexibility is maintained to ensure that each pupil gets the maximum exposure to the range of work in Chambers.
