Pupillage Competition

"We see our pupils as our future tenants and our junior tenants as our future.”

All pupillage vacancies at 36 Group are placed on the Pupillage Gateway, which is the annual online application system for pupillage operated by the Bar Council.

The 36 Group will be taking on one criminal, one civil and one  family pupil to begin in October 2019. These positions will be advertised through the Pupillage Gateway. The adverts will be available to view from 28th November 2017. Applications may be made from  January 2018. Please do not apply to Chambers other than through the Pupillage Gateway. No applications for pupillage will be considered other than those made through the Pupillage Gateway.

The 36 Group at 36 Bedford Row comprises a number of specialist practice groups. The principal practice groups are 36 Family, 36 Crime, and 36 Civil. Additionally, there are practice groups for consumer, employment, immigration and education law work.

Each practice group has its own Head of Practice Group, and its own strategy, business plan and ethos. Almost all practitioners are members of one only of the major practice groups, and specialise in that practice area.

We are a stable and well established set of Chambers, with an unbroken history dating back to the 1850s. Over the past 25 years, we have steadily moved away from our common law background where each practitioner covered had a mixed practice covering crime, family and civil to a situation where members will practise in only one of those areas.

Today, we are a progressive and innovative set numbering over a 100 members. Our practice managers lead on business development as well as heading up their clerking teams in family, crime and civil, respectively.

We have a strong reputation for high quality work, across a variety of practice areas. In recent years, for instance, several members have appeared in important Court of Appeal and Supreme Court cases in family, criminal, commercial, property, consumer, employment, European Union and immigration law.
