We are now accepting applications for two twelve-month pupillages: one commencing in April 2021 and one commencing in October 2021. Full details of our pupillages can be found in our Pupillage Policy Document, which is available to download from the policies section of our website.

We do not accept applications through the Pupillage Gateway; rather applications are to be made on our application form, which can be downloaded here

All pupillages at Nexus are advertised on the Pupillage Gateway at www.pupillagegateway.com.

Applicants should complete and return their application form to us by email at recruitment@nexuschambers.com. Applicants should also arrange for two references to be sent to us prior to the application deadline (please see the notes in the application form for more information).



Applicants are asked to ensure that they will be available on these dates as we are usually unable to accommodate individual requests for a change in timetable.

Applicants are specifically asked not to telephone chambers

Should an essential query arise, please direct it to recruitment@nexuschambers.com. However, we ask applicants to please refrain from contacting us unless it is absolutely necessary – the administrative burden associated with conducting a pupillage recruitment exercise is already a high one.

We regret that we are unable to provide feedback to applicants who have been unsuccessful at the paper-sift stage.

We are firmly committed to the principles of Equality & Diversity and Fair Recruitment & Selection.
