Legal Pupillage Reimagined

We’re building Pupillage Academy, an online pupillage course management tool, current awaiting Bar Standards Board approval.

Awaiting BSB approval before we can launch

Beyond a reimagined, online course platform our broader mission is to make Pupillage Academy an online beacon for open coaching, compliance & best practice for law pupils in England & Wales

Pupillage management

Our principles work seamlessly together allowing for a structured, streamlined approach to the management of pupillage. This results in an objective, fair and effective process which we hope can improve affordability and accessibility to the bar and ultimately improve access to justice.


It is our strong belief that communication and transparency significantly enhance the learning experience – we shine a beacon on every stage.


As pupils will be qualifying into a regulated profession, compliance forms our essential foundation underpinning all we do.


User-friendly technology connects and enhances all that we do ensuring flexibility and accessibility.

Best practice

Our carefully developed systems ensure consistency and continuous improvement ensuring the delivery of high standards.

Pupillage Grants & Pupillage Application Support

We felt it would be useful for the Pupillage Academy to provide links to external organisations who are able to provide support to individuals in the pursuit of pupillage. If you click through to this page, it will provide some links, which we will add to on an ongoing basis.
