5SAH hosted our first Pupillage Open Evening via zoom on 24 November 2020. Hosted by a team of barristers at 5SAH who have been through Pupillage recently, who are on the Pupillage Committee, and everyone in between.

Who should watch this video?

If you would like to apply for Pupillage at 5SAH and want to find out more about our chambers, practice areas, what life is like on a day to day basis in chambers, and the pupillage process - this event is for you!

Topics covered

  • Why 5SAH? Our Pupillage award, the work we do and why we have such a strong track record of recruiting our pupils as tenants.
  • The application process and what to expect in our first and final interview. Pitfalls to avoid.
  • The pupillage process: which in the main will be a criminal pupillage but there will be opportunities to explore extradition, family, and POCA work.
  • Post-pupillage: support to build a practice, mentors, and support from our clerks and staff.

Q&A's were answered by the panel throughout the session.
