Fountain Court Chambers. Pupils spend the first three and last three months with the same pupil supervisor (who has overall responsibility for seeing that you are getting proper experience) and the middle six months with two different pupil supervisors. You will be called upon to do specific pieces of work for other members of chambers, particularly the Silks. The work of pupils is varied and challenging. Much of it is of a commercial nature and the Bar Council’s “Commercial-General” pupillage checklist is used at Fountain Court. You will spend much time reading papers and preparing pleadings and advices. One consequence of the nature of the work at Fountain Court is that it is unusual for pupils to get work of their own.
