Pupil Supervisors

Pupil Supervisors are able to oversee a pupillage in chambers or in authorised Pupil Training Organisations. In order to become a pupil supervisor (formerly Pupil Master), the barrister should contact their own Inn to request an application form.

Inner Temple Pupil Supervisor Application pack below includes the form and extracts from the Bar Training Regulations and Code of Conduct.

Submitting the form

Once the form has been completed and returned with all relevant documentation, the Inn will submit the application to the Pupil Supervisor’s Sub-Committee for approval. You must allow at least 4-6 weeks for approval. Please note, the process will take longer during the legal holidays.

You must allow at least 4-6 weeks for approval.
