How to apply

The current competition for pupils is now closed. Chambers will be inviting applications for pupillage commencing September/October 2022 in due course. Applications should be made in accordance with the specified procedure, when announced.

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

Future applications for pupillage should be made by completing and sending Chambers’ own application form which will be uploaded in the future for pupillage commencing in 2022.

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.

Applicants selected for the second round of interviews will face a longer interview with a greater emphasis on their achievements and qualities. If a candidate has not yet undertaken a mini-pupillage in Chambers prior to the second round interview, he or she may be invited to do so. Candidates who spend time in Chambers will have a far greater understanding of our practice areas and what Chambers is like; we believe that this is of great benefit to applicants.
