From time to time, we run a range of events. In this section, you can find out more about our forthcoming events including details as to how to register to attend them. We also attend events run by others.
On Saturday 17 October 2020 we will have a virtual booth at the Bar Council's Pupillage Fair. Come and talk to our Head of Supervision Julia Witting and our Authorisation Manager Sam Jensen for an overview of the qualification process; key things that every student needs to know about pupillage; information about transferring from other jurisdictions or legal professions; and answers to any general questions you might have about qualifying as a barrister.
Designed in partnership with the Inns of Court and Specialist Bar Associations, The Bar Council’s Pupillage Fair is the only recruitment fair run by the Bar for the Bar of the future. Free of charge and held entirely online, this year’s event will give you the chance to engage with practising barristers, find out about their work and gain insight into what a career at the Bar involves.
Over 800 aspiring barristers took the opportunity to visit last year’s Pupillage Fair and attend a range of advice and panel sessions, drop in at the stands of 80 exhibiting barristers’ chambers and other relevant organisations, and talk to hundreds of volunteers from across the profession. More than 2000 students have already registered for this year's event. Book your place at the 2020 fair to make sure you have the same head start for a potential career at the Bar.
