Chambers and Organisations

The Pupillage Fair is the only fair run by the Bar, for the future Bar. Last year's Fair attracted a record 680 students, 54 chambers/organisations, and more than 150 volunteer barristers.

We already have 1460 students signed up to attend and 68 chambers/organisations.

In response to feedback, this year's Fair will:

  1. Take place at a venue with better space and larger rooms for sessions.
  2. Include targeted sessions on specific practice areas.
  3. Offer space dedicated to specific practice areas.
  4. Be co-designed in association with Specialist Bar Associations.
  5. Involve more targeted marketing to students.
