Interviews

Interviews are your gateway to pupillage. While some chambers will have just one round of interviews after the paper application stage, most will have two.

If you get an interview, take heart! It is an indication by that chambers that you have the basic educational and experience requirements to become a tenant there. Chambers do not invite people to interview just to ‘make up the numbers’. Interviewing you takes time and effort and they would not do that unless they genuinely see you as a potential pupil.

Preparation is paramount because pupillage interviews are tough. Not only is the competition at this stage likely to be fierce but you will also be facing a panel of highly intelligent individuals, trained in the art of cross-examination. They will thus be masters in the art of using questions to put people under pressure and to wheedle out weaknesses or inconsistencies in a story.
