Financial and Other Support Available
Our pupillage award consists of guaranteed earnings of £20,703 per annum, paid in equal monthly payments of £1,725.25.
In addition to the guaranteed earnings, and in particular owing to these difficult times post covid, with a cost of living crisis and the recent Criminal Bar Strike action, Nexus operates a Hardship Fund that any member of chambers can, in confidence, apply for in order to assist them with any financial difficulty. Each case is treated on a case by case basis.

About AETO and Structure of Pupillage
Nexus is a common law set that offers pupillage within the main practice areas of crime, family and general civil law. Pupils can further expect to assist members of chambers with regards to inquest and regulatory work.
Nexus' pupils can expect to shadow, assist and learn from our diverse members and their respective practice areas. During your first six months you can expect to be under the guidance of two pupil supervisors with varying practice areas and working methods.
Following Covid, Nexus recognises the importance of relationships between pupils and its tenants and seeks to promote the exposure every pupil has to our members in order to broaden and deepen the training provided.
Reviews and training sessions are periodically undertaken throughout pupillage with feedback provided, in particular during the second six (practicing period) that shall include a review with the practice managers to discuss work load and client based feedback (if applicable).
