Event Type

The covid-19 pandemic affected the extent to which people planning to apply for pupillage in 2023 have been able to build-up experience in the field of public law, for example through mini-pupillages.  As a result – and as part of its efforts to widen access to the Bar – the Constitutional and Administrative Law Bar Association (ALBA) is holding a webinar intended to help those considering applying for pupillage in public law.

The webinar is aimed at all those who are considering applying for pupillage in 2023.  It is not limited to student members of ALBA (although you can join as a student member of ALBA for £20 a year).

The webinar (held on Zoom) will be chaired by Richard Honey KC of Francis Taylor Building.

It will comprise short, focused talks (5-8 minutes) on the following subjects:

  1. what does a public law practice at the Bar cover – Sarah Sackman, Matrix Chambers
  1. what is public law really about in practice – Steve Broach, 39 Essex Chambers
  1. public law practice beyond London – Christian Weaver, Garden Court North
  1. sets to think about applying to for pupillage – Amy Mannion, 1 Crown Office Row
  1. public law pupillage in the Government legal profession – Simon Regis, Deputy Director, DCMS Legal Advisers
  1. how to demonstrate an interest in public law – Khatija Hafesji, Monckton Chambers
  1. what public law sets are looking for in candidates – Anneli Howard KC, Monckton Chambers
  1. how to stand out at the application stage – Caroline Daly, Francis Taylor Building
  1. how to do well in interviews – Imogen Proud, Monckton Chambers
  1. a pupil’s perspective – Stephanie Davin, Doughty Street Chambers

The webinar will end with a 30 minute Q&A session.

Please note that booking will close at 6pm on Sunday, 8 January 2023. The zoom link will be sent out after this time.
