Pupillage

Each pupil to serve under at most one silk for a maximum period of 3 months
We encourage current law students to consider serving pupillage here. We recognize that the arrival of fresh pupils often brings in additional energy and new perspectives to chambers.

An increasing number of existing tenants have expressed their willingness to take on pupils. Most are criminal practitioners, so unless you specify a particular pupil master you would like to follow, we would assume our applicants to be primarily interested in taking up a criminal seat.

Both Lawrence and Edwin are silks and although they are open to take on pupils, the Bar has mandated specific rules restricting each pupil to serve under at most one silk for a maximum period of 3 months. Thus, if you intend to apply to serve under a silk, please bear that in mind.

We do not set deadlines on when applications have to be submitted, but you would appreciate that once a pupil master has had his card filled, it will not be possible to entertain any additional candidates.

If you intend to apply, you may write directly to an individual barrister or, if you have no specific preference, you could also send in your application to chambers, marked for the attention of Mr. Joe Chan.
