    Which is the best set? Is it easier to get in to some than others? When offering pupillage, what is the criteria Chambers use to assess applications?

    Thanks in advance?

    Chambers & Partners/legal 500 provide lists. It is easier to get into some than others, but this is relative. They are all difficult.

    Chambers will have their own scoring system - academics will be given the most weight.

    I think academics play a significant role, but whether you can eventually make the chambers money (by bringing in business via connections with solicitors etc), and are a good "fit" with the ethos and culture of the chambers is more of a deciding factor.
    Obviously you will have to pass a certain academic bar to get you to the interview process, but once at the interview level, it's all about how you as an individual, and not your academic profile, and your interactions with the panel...
    Just my two cents

    Yep, for the best sets in different areas, have a play around with the tables that you can reach from this page.
