This is a Pupillage event, geared towards helping BPTC students who are applying for pupillage. There will be a Panel of senior and junior barristers who will speak about their experience of pupillage, what they look for when sifting through pupillage applications, and what makes a successful interview.

The evening will consist of four parts. Firstly the panel be giving insight into their own journey, practice areas and helpful tips on do’s and don’ts regarding interviews and applications.

The Second segment of the evening will be testimonials of students who have successfully secured pupillage. Describing how to best edit and form a pupillage application, the best way to prepare and conduct an interview. As well as their personal pupillage stories.

Thirdly there will be a 10 minute mock interview of a student applicant by a panel of barristers. Followed by a 10 minute feedback from the panel, all of which are conducted in front of the audience.

The fourth and final section is a one on one workshop, where all attendees can receive critique on their pupillage applications. Students will be given 10 minutes one to one sessions from a team of barristers marking applications. We recommend bringing one or two applications, as many questions will be similar, and due to time and resources there will not be time to go through 12 individual applications each.

This is a unique opportunity to gain, support, advice and insight into one of the most stressful times of your life. Please seize the opportunity.
