Gilt Chambers maintains high standards for its members and enjoys a high degree of collegiality amongst members of chambers.

Gilt Chambers provides pupillage opportunities to those with genuine intellectual curiosity, high academic standards and a dedication to make a positive contribution to the law. Gilt Chambers understands the importance of nurturing talent, and providing its pupils with an environment where they can hone their talents and have a promising career at the Bar. Gilt Chambers encourages applicants to indicate the area of law in which they wish to practice in, so pupils can be paired up with a pupil master in that field, to make their time at Gilt Chambers more enjoyable and rewarding. In most cases, pupils apply for two 3-month periods of pupillage with different pupil masters to gain more exposure to different areas of law and styles of advocacy.

In the past, Gilt Chambers has offered tenancies to pupils who have demonstrated an eagerness to excel in their chosen career, and who have the talent which enhances Gilt Chambers’ reputation as one of the leading Chambers in Hong Kong.
