Hardwicke pupil barristers advise


With pupillage application season now well underway, three rookie barristers are on hand in the comments section below to respond to any questions you might have about securing a foot in the door at the bar.

How did Clare Anslow, Simon Kerry and Louis Zvesper (pictured above) bag their pupillages at Hardwicke? And what advice would they give to those hoping to follow in their footsteps?

With only Kerry attending Oxbridge (he went to Oxford, while Anslow and Zvesper graduated from Durham and King’s College London respectively), the trio have different perspectives on the application and interview process that will hopefully help Legal Cheek readers to standout.

Join them in the comments section of this article from 6pm, where they will be taking questions until 7pm.

Hardwicke follows Pupillage Gateway dates but has a custom application process. You can find out more here.
