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.
Applications are accepted through the Pupillage Gateway and 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.
