In this new series, members of 39 Essex Chambers give you the lowdown about mini-pupillage, pupillage and tenancy. Topics range from a day in the life of a pupil to tips and tricks for applications. We hope that these episodes will help those thinking of applying to 39 Essex Chambers, or anyone looking to pursue a career at the bar.
In the first episode, Ruth Keating and Dan Kozelko discuss some of the common mistakes that applicants make when applying for a mini-pupillage. The discussion includes comments on how to approach writing an application, what should be included to highlight an applicant’s skills, and important things to avoid as part of the process.
