The Pupillage Award

What is the pupillage award?

Pupillage carries with it an award of up to £60,000. Part of the award is tax free. Chambers also pays for compulsory courses that are undertaken during pupillage, such as the Forensic Accountancy Course.

Can any of the pupillage award be drawn down during the BPTC year?

We recognise that the BPTC year is costly, particularly in terms of the expense of the BPTC course itself, and so we allow up to £15,000 of the pupillage award to be drawn down.
