Subscribing to the Pupillage Gateway has never been easier. Just follow this two-step process:
Step 1: Please contact the Bar Council’s Services Team on 020 7611 1321 to make payment over the phone by credit or debit card. If you would prefer to pay by cheque then please make payable to ‘The General Council of the Bar’ and send to Services Team, The General Council of the Bar, 289-293 High Holborn, London, WC1V 7HZ. If you wish to pay by BACS then please contact Services on 020 7611 1321 or email PupillageGateway@BarCouncil.org.uk. The total amount payable for early bird members (e.g. those who sign-up before 30 September) is £706.50 plus VAT (£847.80) and, for those who sign-up thereafter £785 plus VAT (£942). If you’re an Annual Chambers Management Package member then don’t forget to apply your discount and pay as follows (including VAT): Bronze = £763.02 for early birds and £847.80 thereafter; Silver = £678.24 for early birds and £753.60 thereafter; and Gold £593.46 for early birds and £659.40 thereafter.
Step 2: If you are new to the system this year, please complete the AETO Account Information Form and return to Pupillagegateway@barcouncil.org.uk. On receipt of payment confirmation from step 1, the Bar Council’s Services team will activate your account and login details will be issued to you by email. If you are not planning on using the Pupillage Gateway to manage applications but still need to advertise, complete the AETO Account Information Form and the Vacancy Information Form and email them to the Bar Council at Pupillagegateway@barcouncil.org.uk and we will publish your vacancy. You will then receive a confirmation email once this has been done.
