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 1 December 2018.

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. We do advise that you arrive early for each talk as they can get extremely popular!
