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. Book your place at the 2020 fair to make sure you have the same head start for a potential career at the Bar.
Employed barristers from a range of organisations and practice areas give insight into their working lives and how they compare or contrast to life at the self-employed Bar.
Barristers share their experience of joining the Bar at a later stage and explain the benefits and challenges of doing so.
Barristers with experience of a range of disabilities share their thoughts on the pupillage recruitment process and life at the Bar, including the challenges that they face(d), existing forms of support and areas for improvement.
