National Pupillage Fair

Meet chambers, Bar associations and course providers. A must attend for future barristers.

Talks programme

The TARGETjobs National Pupillage Fair hosts a series of talks on careers at the Bar every year and due to popular demand we run double sessions back to back throughout the day.

Please see below the proposed schedule (which is subject to change) taking place on Saturday 30 November 2019.

Half the talks will take place in Advocacy Room at Gray's Inn and half will take place in the Education Training Room at Gray's Inn. These rooms will be signposted on the day and we do advise that you arrive early for each talk as they can get extremely popular!
