Pupillage Interviews And News From The Pupillage Blog

Latest News From The Pupillage Blog....

Can I start by saying a big thank you to all of those readers who have commented upon A Day In The Life of A Barrister with Felicity Gerry.  Over the coming weeks, ‘A Day In The Life of A Barrister’ will be a ongoing feature that will feature additional barristers, so keep an eye on ‘The Pupillage Blog’.

Turning now to the onslaught of pupillage interviews on the horizon, I can only stress how important it is to ensure that you are fully prepared and that you have approached any perspective interview with the absolute diligence required to answer any question that may be directed to you.  With this in mind, it is important to ensure that you are up-to-speed with the relevant legal news and especially news surrounding the legal disciplines that your respective chambers practices.  Over the coming weeks I will be adding relevant chambers newsletters to ‘Chambers Legal Commentary’ which will provide both decisive and compelling legal opinion to pertinent areas of law and applicable case law by respected barristers.

Other ongoing updates on ‘The Pupillage Blog’ include ‘News From Chambers’  (Court Diary & Chambers Updates) which from today (22nd May) include full Barrister profiles on all chambers news.  Finally, for those who do not subscribe to @Pupillageblog on Twitter, then you can catch with the daily legal news through the Court Diary Tweets at the Daily Pupillage Blog Legal News Updates via Twitter.

The news from the Bar this week has been eventful as ever.  On May 20th, the Bar Standards Board announced that there were to be proposed changes to CPD for all Barristers, which included an increase of CPD hours from 12 to 24.  Personally, I consider this a very sensible move, as arguably the proposed changes to Barristers CPD fall in line with other professions and should reflect the every changing and growing rigours of our practice.  For an in depth appraisal of the commissioned review by the Bar Standards Board into CPD Click here.

Finally, I would like to congratulate all of those fine individuals who embarked upon the London Legal Walk this week and to their credit have raised nearly £500,000 for free legal advice centres in London. Outstanding effort!!!  To see details of the monies raised and those 68 Bar Teams that took part, click here.

So until next time,  good luck with all those pupillage interview preparations and keep your eyes peeled on ‘The Pupillage Blog’.

As always,
Justin Time
