5RB is not currently seeking to recruit any first-six or second-six pupils to begin before October 2020.

We currently anticipate that the next round of applications for 12-month pupillages will take place during the academic year 2018/2019, for pupillages to commence in October 2020. We will post details of the process on the website closer to the application date. If you are interested in a 12-month pupillage at 5RB beginning October 2020, please check back here in from October 2018.

For further information on pupillage, please see our Pupillage Policy.

Third six pupillage

We are currently looking to recruit a third six pupil to commence pupillage in October 2018. Experience of practice in our specialist areas of law is not necessary, although an interest is essential.

Please apply by way of a CV and covering letter addressed to the Pupillage Committee by email to alexandramarzec@5rb.com, marked ‘Third Six Application’ in the subject heading (or by hard copy to the Committee at Chambers’ address). The deadline for applications is Friday 7 July 2018.

Please provide the names of at least two referees. These must include at least one from each chambers in which you have been a pupil.

All applications and related communications will be treated in the strictest confidence.

We will interview selected candidates on a date in July to be fixed. If you are invited for interview, in the week before the interview we will send you a short written exercise to complete before you come to chambers. The interview process will take the form of an advocacy exercise and a standard question-and-answer session. Please let us know of any dates in July that you cannot attend for interview.
