Third Six Pupillage at Foundry Chambers

Third six pupils are recruited as the need arises. Chambers does not offer third six pupillages with a “view” to a tenancy but a number of our junior tenants have been recruited from amongst our third six pupils. As a general rule, we will consider an application for tenancy after a third-six pupil has been in chambers with us for six months.

Third-six pupils can expect to be in court every day, conducting prosecution and defence work in the Crown and Magistrates’ Courts.

Third-six pupils will be assigned two pupil supervisors during their time with us, changing supervisor at the three-month stage. You will also be given the opportunity to do work for other members of chambers, and, if appropriate, be invited to attend pupils’ advocacy training alongside our 12-month pupils.

Interviews are conducted by the Pupillage Committee. Vacancies for third six pupils are advertised in Crown Court robing rooms, the Inns of Court and on the Bar Council website.
