The covid-19 pandemic has affected the extent to which people planning to apply for pupillage in 2021 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 2021. 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 will be chaired by Richard Honey of Francis Taylor Building.
It will comprise short, focused talks on the following subjects:
- what does a public law practice at the Bar cover – Dan Squires QC, Matrix Chambers
- what is public law really about in practice – Steve Broach, 39 Essex Chambers
- public law practice beyond London – Arianna Kelly, Kings Chambers
- sets to think about applying to for pupillage – Amy Mannion, 1 Crown Office Row
- how to demonstrate an interest in public law – Khatija Hafesji, Monckton Chambers
- what public law sets are looking for in candidates – Anneli Howard, Monckton Chambers
- how to stand out at the application stage – David Mitchell, 39 Essex Chambers
- how to do well in interviews – Imogen Proud, Monckton Chambers
- a pupil’s perspective – Tayyiba Bajwa, Doughty Street Chambers
The webinar will end with a 30 minute Q&A session.
