The Legal Cheek Virtual Pupillage Fairs take place during autumn-winter 2020, with the first fair on Saturday 3 October and the second on Saturday 5 December. Each has capacity for 2,000 students, making them the largest Bar student careers events in the UK.
Drawing on Legal Cheek‘s unparalleled law student subscriber and follower base, as well its extensive campus ambassador network, the fairs give students from all parts of the UK the opportunity to meet the nation’s leading chambers from their laptops. Students based overseas who intend to qualify as barristers and are eligible to work in the UK are also encouraged to attend.

How it works
Each participating chambers has a branded virtual booth with a livestream that allows students to join in video chats with lawyers, graduate recruitment experts and trainees. Students can also submit written questions in the live chats and browse custom chambers content. Meanwhile, there is an option to replace your video livestream with static video content for periods during the pupillage fair.
The booths are located within a virtual expo hall, which students can wander through, visiting the various booths.
During the law fair students can join separate 30-minute long themed workshops by different chambers taking place at scheduled times during the course of the event.
All Legal Cheek advertiser chambers receive a virtual booth at the fairs as part of their 2020-21 Legal Cheek packages. Other chambers who would like to get involved should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
