Mentoring Scheme

The Mentoring Scheme will match you with a local barrister practising in the area of law in which you are seeking pupillage.

The on-going relationship with your mentor will be a valuable source of guidance on all aspects of a career at the Bar.

Very beneficial in learning more about the Bar from a skilled practitioner. An invaluable experience I would recommend to any student.
