First up, the TARGETjobs National Pupillage Fair which will be taking place on Saturday 5 March 2011 at Lincoln’s Inn, London from 10.30 am – 3.00 pm.
It’s the only event for students seeking pupillages to meet with chambers and course providers. Students will have the valuable opportunity to speak to chambers, get their questions answered and gain an insight into life at the Bar. During the day there will be a programme of talks covering key topics, for example criminal bar, commercial bar, common law bar, human rights bar and other specialist areas of practice. It’s also a chance to pick up a copy of the Pupillages Handbook.
