Pupillage at Henderson Chambers

Henderson should draw your eye for its fascinating group action work and rigorous assessment and training of pupils. It certainly gets top marks from us

Following our announcement yesterday morning, we are pleased to be able to report that the Bar Council has been able to offer us the opportunity to defer the current round of Pupillage interviews and offer making (for Pupillage commencing 2021-22) until the Summer and Autumn, so long as offers are made before the Bar Standards Board introduces the single mandatory recruitment timetable on 1 November 2020. We are grateful for this change of position and it enables us to postpone rather than cancel this pupillage round. The recruitment round remains suspended for the moment, but candidates who had been selected for first round interview will, depending on the prevailing circumstances, be interviewed later on in 2020. We would like to thank the Bar Council for taking this action at this most difficult time.

Your Pupillage

Over the course of 12 months, pupils undertake four seats with four supervisors. The second six is defined by real live advocacy as pupils get on their feet in court in their own cases. They can also undertake a month's secondment with Conrad Griffiths QC of Griffiths & Partners in the Turks and Caicos Islands, Caribbean. We provide feedback on all pieces of work and have an advocacy training programme. Pupils are fully integrated into the life of Chambers and participate in its wide range of professional and social activities.
