Pupils

The Further Education Programme is a compulsory part of a pupil's training. You will not be entitled to obtain a final practicing certificate or enter independent practice without having completed these requirements.

Register your pupillage with the BSB and inform the Inn

It is very important that you register your pupillage as soon as possible with the Bar Standards Board, using the registration form which you can download at the link below. The completed form, when signed by your pupil supervisor, should be sent to the BSB. They will not register your pupillage without a signature from your pupil supervisor.

You should also complete the online survey via the second link below, to let the Education department at Inner Temple know the details of your pupillage. This can be done at any point, even if your pupil supervisor is not yet confirmed.

The Inner Temple Pupils’ Advocacy Training Programme

The Bar Standards Board (BSB) requires all pupils to complete a pupils advocacy training course before commencing their 2nd six of pupillage. The Inn provides two courses each academic year. Course A takes place between October and November and Course B between January and February. 

The course consists of  a series of in-person sessions as well as a residential weekend. As part of the Inn's Pupils Advocacy Training Programme we also deliver a one day Practice Management Course (PMC). The PMC is not compulsory but attendance is encouraged.

The next PMC will take place in January 2025. 

Those undertaking pupillage outside of London and the South Eastern Circuit would ordinarily complete a course offered by their Circuit, rather than at the Inn. Details of all Circuits can be found on The Bar Council website.

The requirement to complete a Forensic Accountancy Course during pupillage (or the first three years of practice) ceased in 2019.
