Welcome to the Bar Council’s Pupillage Gateway – the pupillage recruitment portal designed by the Bar, for the Bar of the future.
The Pupillage Gateway is the online application system for pupillage. Under the Bar Standards Board’s Bar Qualification Manual, any vacancies for pupillage must be advertised on the Gateway. Furthermore, approximately 105 (or 50% of) Authorised Education and Training Organisations (‘AETOs’) use the Pupillage Gateway to administer their pupillage recruitment process.
Operated by the Bar Council, prospective candidates can use the Pupillage Gateway to search for vacancies, prepare and save their applications in advance of the timetable going live using the practice application form, and to apply to those AETOs that use the Gateway to recruit and track the progress of any applications made. Further details about the functions of the system can be found in the Applicant User Guide (pdf).
