Unfortunately, many mini pupillages were postponed due to COVID-19. We know that made it hard for students gain insight into various practice areas and chambers in advance of making pupillage applications. To combat this problem, on 26th November 2020 a panel of members including the Head of our Pupillage Committee, Silks and Juniors came together to provide you with an snapshot of life at 7BR and what a pupillage with us looks like.
The session included introductions into our key practice areas and overviews of ground-breaking and interesting cases in which our members were instructed. These include the recent Court of Appeal case of Swift v Carpenter, in which our Derek Sweeting QC (Chairman of the Bar Council) represented the successful claimant. We also discussed what it is like to be a pupil at 7BR, the relationship you can expect with your pupil supervisor, how we support you into tenancy, and coming to the Bar as a second career.
