Special pupillages & hosting arrangements

We may exceptionally be prepared to offer a shortened period of pupillage to an individual who has already completed part of his or her minimum 12 months of pupillage elsewhere (whether through a period of pupillage or through legal training that has been accepted by the Bar Standards Board as standing in lieu of a particular period of pupillage).  We may also occasionally agree to host a pupil of another pupillage training organisation (such as the Government Legal Service) for a period of his or her pupillage, provided that the pupil in question does not intend to seek a tenancy at Monckton Chambers.  Any enquiries about such arrangements should be made in writing to the Head of Chambers.  Such arrangements can, of course, be considered only where compatible with all relevant professional rules.
