Atkin Chambers Barristers
We offer two funded 12 month pupillages at Atkin Chambers each year.
We are committed to recruiting pupils and tenants (generally from our own pupils) who will participate in the continued success of Atkin Chambers in domestic and international work. Our general policy is to grow at a measured rate by the recruitment of tenants usually at a rate of one or two a year. Over the last 5 years we have offered tenancy to 8 of our pupils.
As a chambers, we take recruitment to pupillage and to tenancy extremely seriously. The pupillage award, equivalent to the sums paid by other much larger sets of chambers, reflects this.
Two fully funded pupillages to a value of £50,000 (2013/14) per pupil for 12 months are available. The award is reviewed annually. The award is paid monthly in advance in equal installments. An advance of up to £10,000 is available from the pupillage award as funding for the BVC should it be required. We are also happy to consider requests for additional advances on a case by case basis.
