Applications for Third Six Pupillage Invited

Old Square Tax Chambers is inviting applications for third six pupillage from candidates with experience in the commercial and/or chancery fields. The pupillage is offered with a view a tenancy at the end of the six months and will commence in October 2017.

Old Square Tax Chambers is a set specializing in revenue law and any applicant will ultimately be expected to develop their practice in this area. Prior experience is not necessary although a good grounding in general law and an interest revenue law is. Many of our existing tenants have come to Chambers without any prior experience in tax and have gone on to establish themselves in the area.

As we are recruiting from those without prior revenue law experience, the pupillage will largely be non-practicing. As a consequence it comes with an award of £25,000. Furthermore, if the successful applicant is offered tenancy, Chambers will guarantee earnings of £50,000 for the first year of practice.

Applications should be made by 1 September 2017 (or by 15 September 2017 if an early application is not practical) way of CV and covering letter to taxchambers@15oldsquare.co.uk. They should include information on the work they have experienced and undertaken in pupillage to date.
