Guidance on Pupillage Assessment Process

Home | Recruitment | Pupillage | Guidance on Pupillage Assessment Process

Our website includes extensive additional information about life during pupillage at Keating (via a series of videos/podcasts), the Pupillage Committee and our work in relation to Diversity and Inclusion: please do browse. We think you will like what you see.

If you need us to make a reasonable adjustment for a disability at any stage we will be happy to do so.  Candidates will be invited to contact a named person at each stage of the process for this purpose.

Selection Process

The selection process consists of five stages:

  1. Application form via the Gateway.
  2. Written case study.
  3. First Interview.
  4. Second Interview.
  5. Selection for pupillage.

At each stage, candidates are assessed against our Selection Criteria. These have been broken down into separate definitions, to provide as much clarity as possible to candidates as to what Keating Chambers is looking for when assessing applications.  The Selection Criteria are very important; you should use them as a guide to every stage of our process.

More information on each of the stages is provided in the links above/tabs to the left, along with our Mark Scheme, which includes some specific additional guidance, particularly for the application form stage.

We wish you all the very best of luck.
