New Park Court awards pupillages to outstanding candidates who have a strong desire to succeed at the Bar. Successful candidates will have a proven academic record, attaining a minimum of a 2:1 or equivalent at degree level. Only in exceptional circumstances will we consider applicants who have not reached this level and appropriate evidence of such circumstances should be included with your application.
Chambers offer up to two pupillages per year, based at either Leeds or Newcastle. The completion of a mini-pupillage in Chambers, whilst not essential, is of assistance to the Pupillage Committee when considering applications.
Whilst you will be challenged and required to contribute to Chambers’ expected high standards, in return you can expect an exceptional level of support and training to equip you with the necessary skills and experience to set you on a path to a fulfilling career and life at the Bar.
Pupillage vacancies are advertised via the Pupillage Gateway.
The application process for a pupillage at New Park Court is now open, via the Pupillage Gateway.
We are offering a pupillage to begin in September 2025 to two outstanding candidates. One pupillage will be located in Newcastle and one pupillage is offered for Leeds. The pupillage will guarantee a comprehensive well supported common law education, which will include an introduction and grounding in serious crime and regulatory enforcement. An education which has proved successful in our recent recruitment, development and expansion.
We are a supportive set, keen to develop the individual and promote diversity.
