About AETO and Structure of Pupillage

Guernica 37 was set up in 2016. We are a highly specialised Barristers' Chambers that brings together Barristers and international attorneys with expertise in international law.

Members of Chambers have been at the forefront of some of the most important developments in international law and accountability over recent years.

Current instructions include high-profile cases and investigations before domestic courts in England and Wales, specialised tribunals (Kosovo Specialist Chambers in The Hague), regional human rights courts and institutions (such as the European Court of Human Rights) and international courts, such as the International Criminal Court and the International Court of Justice in The Hague.

As much as pupils will be involved in all cases across the spectrum of work being undertaken by Guernica members, they will also be expected, with support, to undertake a mixed domestic practice as well, so as to develop written and oral advocacy skills at the start of their career.

Candidates should be highly motivated, with a strong work ethic, and have accountability for victims as being one of their central motivators.

They will need to be able to demonstrate that they have the necessary intellectual and analytical skills to be able to process and advise on complex and often novel legal issues across a variety of practice areas, and across a number of different jurisdictions.
