“The upshot of excellence past and present is that QEB is a no-brainer for those seeking a family law pupillage”.

Chambers & Partners Student Guide 2019

QEB is a preeminent family law set renowned for its top tier financial remedy practice. Consistently ranked in Band 1 for many years and with a reputation for excellence, we aim to provide two pupillages every year.

QEB pupillages

We recruit pupils through the Pupillage Gateway System. At QEB, a 12-month pupillage involves three pupil supervisors, in addition to which pupils are encouraged to work with other tenants at all levels to gain broad experience.

  • 2 pupillages available each year (both for 12 months)
  • Pupillage Award: currently under review at £35,000 plus earnings (as a result of instructions received in the second-six).
  • We have taken on seven QEB pupils as new tenants in the past four years.

We require applicants to have a strong academic record (minimum 2:1 law or non-law degree, save in exceptional circumstances), good legal and analytical skills and an ability to communicate sensitively with a wide range of people at a critical time in their lives.

Equal opportunities

QEB operates an equal opportunities policy. Appendix 3 of that policy directly relates to the selection of pupils and tenants and a copy can be downloaded here.
