18th January 2024 at 6pm – Online Pupillage Panel and CV Workshop Jointly hosted by the Chancery Bar Association, COMBAR and TECBAR

The Chancery Bar Association, COMBAR and TECBAR, are delighted to jointly host a pupillage panel and CV workshop for those interested in pupillage at the commercial and chancery bar. We would especially welcome those from under-represented and non-traditional backgrounds and a number of such barristers will also be taking part.

The Panel will be chaired by Zulfikar Khayum (Atkin Chambers) and include Lucy Garret KC (head of the pupillage committee at Keating Chambers), Michael Walsh (Secretary to the pupillage committee at Serle Court Chambers) and more recent tenants Neil Dowers (4 Pump Court) and Sheriar Khan (Atkin Chambers).  The panel will discuss and provide some guidance in relation to the pupillage application process in general.

There will then be a CV workshop undertaken on an individual basis with at least twenty commercial/chancery KCs and junior barristers, all of whom have relevant experience in a wide range of commercial and chancery practice; many of whom act as pupil supervisors or mentors to aspiring pupils. This is an invaluable opportunity to hear from those experienced in reviewing pupillage applications and to receive a one-on-one CV review from a barrister specialising in commercial/chancery practice. Barristers from a wide range of sets including Atkin Chambers, Brick Court Chambers, Keating Chambers, Littleton Chambers, No.5 Chambers, One Essex Court, Quadrant Chambers, Selborne Chambers, Serle Court Chambers, 2 Temple Gardens, 3VB, 4 Pump Court, 4 New Square, 7 KBW and 39 Essex Chambers will be taking part.

All are welcome. Membership of ChBA, COMBAR or TECBAR is not required. Participation in the CV workshop is limited to 45 places. Those wishing to participate should sign-up on the following registration page: Registration is now closed for this event.
