Chambers welcomes applications (outside the Pupillage Gateway) for unfunded pupillages provided that the candidate does not intend to practise at the Bar of England and Wales. Such applications are subject to Chambers’ ability to accommodate them. They will be assessed by reference to a combination of the Pupillage Selection Criteria and the business case for offering the unfunded pupillage. Unfunded pupillages will be exceptional and will be subject to obtaining the relevant advertising and funding waivers from the Bar Standards Board.
Applications for unfunded pupillages may be made at any time by CV and covering letter, explaining the reasons why such a pupillage at Keating Chambers is being sought. Applications should be made by email, post or by hand to Elaine Browne, Keating Chambers, 15 Essex Street, London, WC2R 3AA. Such applications will be considered periodically throughout the year.
