Frequently asked questions
Where is the fair being held?
The fair is being held at The Honourable Society of Lincoln's Inn, where the nearest tube stations are Holborn or Chancery Lane. Please enter via the main entrance which is located on the south east corner of Lincoln's Inn Fields. We do recommend using public transport to get to the fair as parking is very limited and can be expensive.
How do I know which chambers, course providers and supporting organisations will be at the fair?
Keep visiting the the website where new exhibitors will be added.
How do I find out about the talks programme?
The targetjobs National Pupillage Fair hosts a series of talks on careers at the Bar every year. The talks programme is always very popular and spaces are limited so make sure you arrive early. If you don’t manage to see any of the talks, don’t worry; they will be available online after the fair on our YouTube channel. You do not need to pre-book to attend these talks, just arrive early and look out for signs on the day saying where these will be held. Full schedule to be announced soon!
Do I need to bring anything with me?
Please bring a copy of your confirmation email from Eventbrite. A pen and a notebook, as this is your chance to get as much information as possible. Be sure to write down as much as you can. You are more than welcome to bring copies of your CV along to the fair, but please bear in mind that stand representatives are not there to advise you on layout or content.
What should I wear?
There is no specific dress code, but we would recommend that you dress to impress; after all, you could be meeting a future employer at the fair.
