Yesterday morning, we welcomed eight first six pupils to Chambers, as they begin the next phase of their legal training through a specialist St Philips pupillage.

The pupils, who each fought off stiff competition from a talented field of applicants, are as follows:

  • Alex Bradford, Business & Property
  • Conor Flaherty, Family
  • Annabel Hale, Crime & Regulatory
  • Felix Levay, Employment & Personal Injury
  • Keiron McCabe, Family
  • Molly Roberts, Family 
  • Sarah Turner, Crime & Regulatory
  • Connor Wright, Employment & Personal Injury

Ali Tabari, chair of the pupillage committee, commented:

“The fact that we are taking on an unprecedented number of pupils is testament to how successful St Philips has been in the post-Covid years, and how we are fully committed to leading the organic growth of some of the best young talent at the Bar.

As the city returns to a normal level of office occupancy, and the profession returns to majority in-person hearings, conferences and events, we are excited to watch the growth of these 8 excellent pupils, who we are confident will be ready to thrive when they take on their own advocacy from April 2024 onwards.”

The arrival of eight new pupils follows closely on the heels of confirmation that all five of Chambers’ 2022 pupils have been offered and accepted tenancy.
