We offer funded 24-month pupillages (subject to any successful pupillage reduction waiver secured during first sixth) across our regional offices. The pupil will be allocated a pupil supervisor who is responsible for the pupil’s overall education and training.
Barristers at Browne Jacobson specialise in regulatory and public law in the fields of health, education and social work, as well as on behalf of major insurers. We’re instructed to prosecute on behalf of national regulators and briefed to conduct high-profile inquests for health organisations and government bodies. We have also represented in respect to national public inquiries including the Grenfell Tower fire, the Manchester Arena tragedy, and, in the recent past, Hillsborough.
The pupillage is offered within our insurance and public sector of the business and will involve work with teams across the sector, with a particular focus on civil, regulatory and public law. We currently have five regulated Pupil Supervisors, and 13 employed barristers whose workload includes appearing in courts and undertaking advisory work, split approximately 50:50.
Our team of employed barristers and in-house advocates regularly appear before senior courts and tribunals across England and Wales and may be required to develop specialisms in any of the areas of law mentioned above. As part of the pupillage, national travel may be required, including to our offices. All travel expenses are met by the firm.
All pupillages offered by us are with a view to permanent employment as a qualified barrister within the firm at the end of the pupillage, subject to individual performance and business need.
All pupillages are funded (salaried) and are offered on a fixed-term contract basis. We will also cover the cost of compulsory pupillage courses.
We also offer a full range of flexible benefits.
