Court Pupillages (Marshalling)
We are able to arrange a Court Pupillage (also known as Marshalling) for you with a member of the Inn who sits on the Bench.
Marshalling is suspended until the end of May 2020. Following developments and updated Government guidance in relation to the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) the Inn is operating a reduced service. Please see our News for the latest updates.
This offers you an excellent chance to gain insight into the role of the judiciary, court procedure and styles of advocacy.
A really fantastic experience. The judge could not have made me feel more welcome.
The programme is available from January of each academic year and is open to you if you are a member of the Inn and either:
- in your final year of university
- a current GDL student
- a current BPTC student
If you are participating in the scheme, you may find guidance on how to address judges and others (PDF) useful.
If you have further questions regarding the programme, please email Alison Hosking in the Education Department.
