Associate tenants joining the team can expect 1 to 2 days’ work a week and competitive terms.

Full Tenants join a flourishing, well clerked and specialist team operating out of Southampton or Chichester, and would of course (if they wished) also be able to accept instructions in Chambers’ other main areas, namely, property, probate and trust disputes.

Mini Pupillage

Undertaking a mini pupillage with us is a great opportunity for you to see our work and experience life in Chambers, and for us to get to know you.

What will I do?

We think that it is important that mini pupils have an active experience with us and we try and replicate life as a pupil as far as possible. You will accompany members of Chambers to court and other appointments, and will also consider papers and complete paperwork. We do not assess our mini pupils, but will provide feedback throughout your mini pupillage.

You can view the feedback we have received post mini pupillage by following this link.

Who should apply?

Applicants for a mini pupillage should ordinarily have started a law degree or the law conversion course, although all applications will be considered.

How to apply?

If you would like to apply for a mini pupillage, please send your CV and a covering email to cmclean@pallantchambers.co.uk
