Pupillage

In 2018, one pupillage will be offered to an applicant who will be either a qualified legal practitioner in a common law jurisdiction or legal academic permitted by the BSB to undertake a reduced pupillage after successfully completing the Bar Transfer Test.

The pupil will commence pupillage in September / October 2018 and will be supervised directly by Jonathan Fisher QC. He or she must have an interest in developing a specialist civil and/or criminal practice focused on financial or corporate wrongdoing. The pupil will work closely with Jonathan Fisher QC on financial and corporate crime cases and will have access to one-on-one training opportunities as part of pupillage. Time will be invested in the pupil so that he or she is equipped to succeed at the Bar. The pupil will have an opportunity to shadow other members of the Bar during their non-practising period and, where possible, marshal with a judge.

The successful candidate will come to the pupillage with an inquisitive mind, excellent academic qualifications, superior oral and written communication skills, litigation experience and a demonstrated interest in cases involving corporate and financial wrongdoing. Commitment to law reform and the development of law is an advantage.
