1CL is recruiting Probationary Tenants



We are currently recruiting for up to two probationary tenants who have completed pupillage but have not secured tenancy elsewhere.  Probationary tenancy was traditionally known as ‘third six pupillage’.

A probationary tenancy with us typically lasts for six months, at the end of which, if there is thought to be sufficient work available at the lower end of chambers, you will be invited to apply for tenancy.  Sometimes the probationary tenancy may be extended by agreement.

Probationary tenants will have two mentors over the six month period who will perform a role similar to that of pupil supervisor in providing you with help and guidance.  In between doing your own work, you will be asked to do paperwork for your mentor and members of the Admissions Committee who will assess any application you make for tenancy.

The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Monday 2nd August 2021.

For further information on the role, our application process and to hear from a former probationary tenant, please visit our Probationary Tenancy page.
