Pupillage is the final stage of the route to qualification at the Bar, in which the pupil gains practical training under the supervision of an experienced barrister. Pupillage is divided into two parts: the non-practising six months (also known as the first six) and the practising six months (also known as the second six).

All pupils must be paid no less than £12,000pa, which is £1,000 per month plus reasonable travel expenses where applicable.
