Red Lion Chambers will be taking part in The Bar Council’s Pupillage Fair 2022 on Saturday Oct 15th at 133 Houndsditch, Liverpool Street, London.

The Fair has been designed in partnership with the Inns of Court and Specialist Bar Associations and will be the first in-person event since 2019.

RLC barristers will be on hand to:

1. Give advice on CVs and applications
2. Discuss funding and support
3. Talk about their experience at the Bar
4. Explain about the RLC Pupillage programme

Zoë Chapman, a Bar Council Social Mobility advocate and Head of the RLC J6 practice group will take part in an online session on Wednesday Oct 12th at 6pm on the topic of “Unconventional Routes to the Bar”- intended for students to gain insight into the route to becoming a barrister after a career change.

She said: “The Criminal Bar is currently going through many difficulties and challenges yet we need to ensure that we are doing all we can to nurture and support new talent from a wide range of backgrounds through the doors. I look forward to taking part in the session online as well as meeting prospective students at the Fair.”

The Fair is free to attend. For more info see here: [Bar Council]
