How to apply

Chambers is currently accepting applications for pupillage commencing in September/October 2021 and also September/October 2022.

Selborne Chambers is not a subscriber to Pupillage Portal; the Bar Council’s online pupillage application system.

Applications for pupillage should be made by completing and sending Chambers’ own application form which is available here. Please specify within the form whether you are applying for a) pupillage commencing September/October 2021 or b) pupillage commencing in September/October 2022 or c) both. Candidates are able to apply for both pupillages if they wish.

Applicants are also invited to complete an anonymised data diversity questionnaire / data consent form. This does not form any part of the pupillage selection process and will be used only for the purposes of Part 2, Section D1.2, Rule C110 of the Bar Standards Board Handbook.


The interview process for pupillage will consist of two rounds. The first round may include questions on a legal problem in addition to general questions about the applicant.
