Pupil barristers

The third and final stage to joining the Bar is the work-based component or pupillage. This is divided into your first six (non-practising) and your second six (practising). There is comprehensive advice and guidance in our ‘Becoming a Barrister’ brochure.

You should browse our pages to find out more information about support and information for pupil barristers available from the Bar Council.
