Crown Chambers Welcomes Third Pupillage Cohort


Following our continued growth throughout 2022 and the success of our second Pupillage programme, Crown Chambers is delighted to have welcomed its third cohort of Pupils.

Our four new Pupils commenced their Pupillage this week, working side-by-side with their experienced Supervisors and running with various cases. Each of the four new Pupils will initially focus on either criminal or family law matters. The pupils will benefit from spending time with their supervisors to gain experience in all the areas of law we practice and see how each barrister undertakes their skillful caseload.

Meet the Pupils

Ellen Boyes – Before joining our pupillage programme, Ellen spent the last year working as a County Court Advocate. Her skills were recognised, and she was awarded an Exhibition Scholarship from The Honourable Society of the Inner Temple. Ellen will work alongside supervisor Joanna Hawkett on family law matters for the first part of her Pupillage.

Annabelle Coakley – Annabelle brings extensive experience in public family law through her previous role with Middlesbrough Council as a Paralegal and prior positions, including as a County Court Advocate. Annabelle has extensive experience working with children and vulnerable people, with a wealth of voluntary experience. Gaynor Hall is supervising Annabelle on family law matters for the first part of her Pupillage.

Fintan Molloy – Before joining our Pupillage programme, Fintan spent nine months as a Litigation Consultant representing in Employment Tribunal hearings.  During his LLM, Fintan specialised in Fraud and Economic Crime. Fintan will be working alongside David Godfrey as his supervisor on criminal law matters during the first part of his Pupillage.

Chloe Pinches – Chloe brings four years of experience as a Paralegal at a leading criminal solicitor’s firm before commencing pupillage with Crown Chambers. Chloe is passionate about representing those from disadvantaged backgrounds and actively encourages the Women in Law agenda. For the first part of her pupillage, Chloe will be supervised by Naomi Madderson on family law matters.

We will keep you updated on the progress of our latest cohort of Pupils via the Crown Chambers social media pages and website.
