Third-six pupillage


We have one vacancy for a third six pupil, commencing September or October 2018, with a view to tenancy. We are looking for a motivated, ambitious candidate who can demonstrate excellent intellectual ability, persuasive communication skills and a genuine interest in our areas of practice.

Your application should include:

  • a covering letter explaining your interest in Hailsham Chambers;
  • your CV;
  • two recent pieces of written work (suitably anonymised), preferably one advice and one pleading;

If you have any questions about a third six pupillage with us, please contact us on the above email address or telephone our senior clerk, Stephen Smith.
