Welcome to the Bar Council’s Pupillage Gateway – your main route to pupillage.

The Pupillage Gateway is the online application system for pupillage. All vacancies will be advertised on the Pupillage Gateway, and approximately 100 chambers will require you to apply through the system. Operated by the Bar Council, the Gateway includes a wider range of search criteria, the ability to store data from previous applications, and a longer time period in which to prepare your applications. The Gateway will allow you to tailor, to a much greater extent, your applications to individual chambers.

Further details about improved functions of the system can be found in the Applicant User Guide (PDF).

See the timetable section for more information on the application process.
