The first ever Bar Council
Pupillage Fair will take place on 21 November 2015 and will be a hub of
information for students considering a career at the Bar and a chance to meet
chambers as well as course providers.
Running alongside the Chancery
Bar Association’s careers fair, the Pupillage Fair will be open to all
chambers looking to recruit, irrespective of their specialism.

workshops tailored for all specialist areas. The fair is an excellent platform
for students to meet chambers and course providers face to face, as well as a
chance for chambers to widen their net in the search for potential
