9 King's Bench Walk is offering two criminal pupillages.

9 King's Bench Walk is offering two criminal pupillages.

However we also have experienced practitioners in immigration and regulatory law who will be able to advise and guide pupils who wish to broaden their areas of specialisation. We intend to recruit pupils who we think have what it takes to become tenants.

Candidates should be willing to work hard, show a commitment to criminal law, have a passion and flair for advocacy, have good interpersonal skills, and be articulate, persuasive and clear.

We do not discriminate between those with law degrees and those with non-law degrees, and encourage applications from those who are coming to the Bar at a later stage in their careers. While we have no absolute requirement as to class of degree, a high standard (generally no less than a 2:1) is usually expected.

In your second six you will be kept very busy in court, doing cases for both the defence and the prosecution, in the Magistrates' Courts every day, as well as Crown Court hearings.

How to apply

Applicants should fill in our application form (see link) and email it to pupillage@9kbw.com before 11am on 7th February 2018. No applications will be considered after the deadline.

Chambers has a robust equal opportunities policy, and does not discriminate on grounds of race, colour, ethnic or national origin, nationality, citizenship, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, religion or political persuasion. We select candidates strictly according to demonstrated merit.
