Zenith Chambers is one of the largest sets on the North Eastern circuit and home to many highly experienced barristers who provide guidance and high quality pupillages to talented young lawyers.
Chambers offers one funded pupillage which will last 12 months and will normally be split between two pupil supervisors. In the second six months pupils will undertake their own court work and can expect to receive substantial earnings in their first year. Chambers offer pupillage on the basis that a tenancy is likely to be available.
Chambers is presently considering applications for pupillage commencing in September 2014 . The application process ran from the 29th March 2013 until the 26th April 2013 and is now closed. Any applications received after this close date will not be considered. Applicants will be notified as soon as possible whether or not they will be called for interview.
