How to secure a pupillage at the commercial Bar — with COMBAR

Tuesday 25 July, 4pm to 5pm, taking place virtually

Join us on the afternoon of Tuesday 25 July for a series of virtual short talks, delivered in partnership with COMBAR, The Commercial Bar Association.

We’ll be joined by practising barristers and COMBAR members to provide students with their top tips for pupillage applications to commercial sets, as well as an invaluable insight into what life is like at the commercial bar.

Date: Tuesday 25 July 2023
Time: 4pm to 5pm
Location: Virtual event
Level: Students, Graduates

The speakers will also explore COMBAR’s mentoring scheme, which pairs individuals from groups who are under-represented at the Bar with practitioners from COMBAR member sets, and how the scheme can help you to secure a commercial pupillage.

The speakers are Neil Dowers, barrister at 4 Pump Court; Emily Betts, barrister at Gatehouse Chambers; and Nick Sloboda, barrister at One Essex Court.

The short talks will be followed by an audience Q&A.

Apply to attend. You’ll be asked to submit two questions for the speakers.
