Goldsmith Chambers has a uniquely competitive commission rate for successful practitioners and we are pleased to be fully operative again in Chambers. We are happy to report that we remain in a strong financial position, despite the current difficult times.
To apply, please send a CV with a covering letter to our Business & Operations Manager, Asli Ozalgan, at: firstname.lastname@example.org. All applications will be treated in the strictest confidence.
Goldsmith Chambers is a leading common-law set of more than 100 members, with crime, immigration, civil and family practice groups. We are a modern, professional and friendly set with a thriving group of junior practitioners. Chambers invites applications for 12-month pupillage commencing October 2023 via Pupillage Gateway in the recruitment window which opens in January 2023. Our pupillage and tenancy committee consists of eight members of Chambers, namely Catherine Milsom, Harry O’Sullivan, Ian Cain, Linda Turnbull, Marie de Redman, Ngaa Zivuku, Roderick Johnson QC and Anthony Metzer QC. Between these members, all areas of law practiced in Chambers are covered.
For further details and to apply, view our Pupillage Gateway Vacancy, here.
After an initial shortlisting process by members of the Pupillage and Tenancy Committee, shortlisted candidates will be invited for interview. Goldsmith Chambers is committed to equality of opportunity. It is our policy to treat everybody equally and fairly, and we assess all applications on merit alone, without reference to the candidates’ race, sex, pregnancy and maternity, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, disability, age, religion or belief. Race encompasses colour, ethnic or national origin and nationality. All applications will be treated in strictest confidence and in full compliance with the Equality and Diversity Rules of the Bar Standards Board’s Code of Conduct.
Our current pupils have recently presented a webinar on the subject of pupillage during the covid-19 lockdown. To view the webinar and access the slides, click here.

*** July 2022 Update: Our mini-pupillage programme remains suspended***
A mini-pupillage with Goldsmith Chambers is an excellent opportunity to experience life in Chambers and to gain an insight into our work by shadowing barristers over the course of a week. Our mini-pupillages are not assessed and nor do we require you to have completed a mini-pupillage in chambers in order to be considered for pupillage. However, it is strongly recommended that if you are thinking of applying for pupillage at Goldsmith Chambers you undertake a mini-pupillage so that you have an opportunity to see the sort of work we do and for us to meet you. The majority of our mini-pupils will spend their time with criminal barristers. However, as we are a common law set, there may be opportunities to observe civil, immigration and family cases. Applications will only be considered from those applicants who are over 18 and have completed their first year of university studies. Mini-pupillages are available in the following periods (please note application deadlines):
|Mini-pupillage period||Application deadline|
|Period 1||1 June – 31 July||31 March|
|Period 2||1 October – 30 November||31 July|
|Period 3||1 February – 31 March||30 November (in preceding year)|
We are unable to offer mini-pupillages outside these periods. We recognise that undertaking mini-pupillages alongside work, studies, caring and other commitments can be difficult. We therefore offer mini-pupillages of varying lengths, usually 3-5 days. You are asked to specify the length of mini-pupillage sought within your application. To apply, please send the following to Mini-Pupillage@goldsmithchambers.com:
It is our policy to treat everyone equally and fairly and we assess all applicants on merit alone, without reference to their race, sex, pregnancy and maternity, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, disability, age, religion or belief.
