The Legal Cheek Virtual Pupillage Fairs 2021

The Legal Cheek Virtual Pupillage Fairs 2021 took place in October and December. They will be back in 2022.

We received 3,000 applications to attend the 2021 Fairs, making them the largest bar 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.

In addition to video walk-ins with chambers’ pupillage recruitment teams each Fair has six careers and commercial awareness virtual workshops delivered by leading barristers.

How it works

The Fairs feature a virtual expo hall divided between large, medium and small booths. There are also a number of breakout workshops running at scheduled times over the course of the Fair. Students wander between the booths while also attending any workshops they are interested in.

Inside the booths there is a livestream that allows students to join in video chats with barristers, pupillage recruitment experts and pupils. Students can also submit written questions in the live chats and browse custom chambers content.
