We offer up to two fully-funded pupillages each year. As we seek to recruit only pupils that we perceive to be strong candidates for tenancy, we will occasionally offer only one pupillage.
Littleton is a member of the Pupillage Gateway. Please go to www.pupillagegateway.com for details as to application requirements and timetable.
Many applicants, particularly those who have studied law at degree level, prefer to apply in the Spring prior to commencement of the BPTC. Successful candidates in this position can undertake the BPTC with the benefit of an advance of part of their pupillage award (if desired) and in the knowledge that they have a place at which they can complete the vocational stage of their training. We are, however, equally happy to receive applications from candidates who have commenced or completed the BPTC.
Our process generally comprises the following stages:
We appreciate that our selection process is fairly rigorous. This is because we only recruit pupils whom we think are very likely to be offered tenancy at the end of the pupillage year. Offers will be made as early as possible, in accordance with the Pupillage Gateway timetable. Our usual minimum academic requirement is a 2:1 degree. We will consider applications from candidates who have not attained this standard only in exceptional circumstances. Any such circumstances should be clearly identified and explained on your application form.
We value equality and diversity and we welcome applications from candidates from all backgrounds and all sectors of the community. Candidates for pupillage and for tenancy are assessed solely on the grounds of merit. If you are disabled and require any adjustments to be made at any stage of the application and selection process then please inform us of this and we will attempt to accommodate your needs.
PLEASE NOTE: We will only consider second and subsequent applications from unsuccessful candidates in exceptional circumstances.
