The Education Department is here to support you throughout your journey to the Bar and to connect you with practising members of the Inn, who are on hand to help you realise your potential.

For all enquiries, please email the Career Development team.

Pupillage application advice

Each January, we hold pupillage application advice sessions, providing you with an opportunity to receive detailed feedback on your written applications. These sessions are open to all members pursuing pupillage. Applications open in early November.

Mock interviews

Support is available for student members with upcoming pupillage interviews. We can arrange a mock interview with a practising barrister to help you finesse your presentation. Contact the team via email to arrange a mock.

Mentoring Scheme

We will pair you with a barrister practising in an area of law you are interested in pursuing. The ongoing relationship can be a valuable source of guidance on all aspects of a career at the Bar. Apply for the mentoring scheme.

Marshalling Scheme

We can connect you with a judge through our Marshalling Scheme. This scheme will give you the opportunity to gain an insight into judicial decision making, court procedure and styles of advocacy. Find out more about the marshalling scheme.
