Pupils at 12KBW will experience a broad range of work across personal injury, insurance, inquests, clinical negligence, international and travel, industrial disease and employment during their first six months in pupillage.

You will work on complex and high-level cases from the outset. In your second six months in pupillage you can expect to have your own clients and attend court multiple times per week. In the links below, three of our most recent tenants discuss their experiences of pupillage at 12KBW.

Quote icon Before starting pupillage, I practised employment law in two City firms for seven years. I loved the work, but I found myself increasingly feeling that I would be better suited to a life at the Bar.
