The Roll Of The Pupillage Dice

The Pupillage Bloghttp://www.pupillageblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/rollofthedice.mp3Listen to the Pupillage Podcast Journal with Justin Time Is attaining pupillage more than a mere roll of the dice…. With the Pupillage Portal once again opening it’s doors in April and the publishing of the ‘Bar Barometer‘ from the Bar Council and Bar Standards Board, it is time to address the fundamental question of whether the opportunity of attaining a pupillage is more than just a mere roll of the dice? Whilst I cannot dispel any myths in respect to attaining the elusive pupillage, I can however draw some conclusions from the available statistical information and hopefully elevate the tone of this debate by seeking to draw a clear understanding and some closure upon the issues which are dogging the profession, whilst hopefully answering the often asked question is there really no ‘bar to the Bar’? From the outset, I need to point out that the formulation of both my opinions and concl...

The Pupillage Bloghttp://www.pupillageblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/PBJan11.mp3Listen to the Pupillage Podcast Journal with Justin TimeGetting on target with that all important pupillage application! It has been an evocative and thought provoking week with the controversial news that barristers will face a duty to report misconduct by their colleagues under new rules proposed by the Bar’s regulator, whilst on the other hand rules have been relaxed to allow barristers to talk to the media. Commentaries by some barristers across Twitter have questioned whether this new change may be used as a litigation tactic? The jury is out on this and only time will tell if this is to be the case. Staying with Twitter, it would seem that the uptake by both barristers and chambers to use this social networking hub is on the increase. Evidence of this social mobility change can also be derived from Baroness Deech, who is said to have persuaded the Bar Standards Board to start engaging upon Tw...

Pupillage Applications and the Pupillage Portal

The Pupillage Bloghttp://www.pupillageblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/PBpodcast03.mp3Listen to the Pupillage Podcast Journal with Justin TimePupillage Doors to the Pupillage Portal Open Once More With the advent of the pupillage doors opening in March, thoughts at ‘The Pupillage Blog’ turn to the usual consideration of the biblical application process otherwise know as OLPAS, or for those subscribing to the political correct, those chambers subscribing to The Pupillage Portal. It never ceases to amaze me that year on year, the criterion of required questions and answers grow relentlessly in both stature and size on one single continual cyber sheet of ever flowing A4. A friend of mine commented on this issue of the OLPAS system, when he stated that in one set of chambers they had built Greek pillars from the application forms and that the Barristers marvelled from afar the daunting prospect of having to inspect and read each of the submitted pupillage application forms. In trut...

Pupillage Interviews Going South!

The Pupillage Bloghttp://www.pupillageblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/PBpodcast02.mp3Listen to the Pupillage Podcast Journal with Justin TimeYour chosen subject: Why do you want to become a Barrister? As a good friend once said to me, “We all come to the Bar with our own story to tell”. So as January comes to an end, another pupillage interview concludes. Unfortunately, it is not the ground breaking news of success, but rather the customary tale of the small manila envelope arriving through the post with the immortal words etched to the paper, “The standard this year was exceptionally high and I regret to inform you, etc…. etc..”. However, I can at least draw some solace and consolation as the letter concludes that I possess the qualities that will hold me in good stead in the area of law in which I would seek to practice and that I am well suited to the profession. Comforting words, but not good enough for me to make it through to the next round of interviews! So amid the ...

Pupillage Interviews Going South!

From Snowy Climbs to Pupillage Applications

The Pupillage Bloghttp://www.pupillageblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/PBpodcast01.mp3Listen to the Pupillage Podcast Journal with Justin Time Snow arrives to Pupillageville! So no sooner has the New Year begun and we are now heads, knees and toes beneath the snow as can be depicted in the Pupillageville photo. With the snow comes the advantage of polishing up my sledging skills upon the pupillage bobsleigh, which has also the added benefit of allowing the venting away into yesteryear all of those rather bizarre pupillage interviews. Importantly though, the time is now to be focused upon applications to the Non-OLPAS sets of chambers. To this end, I will be signposting and diarising upon The Pupillage Blog the different chamber deadlines as they fall due. (Note that applications for pupillage with Frances Taylor Building need to be in for 31st Jan). One significant advantage of Non-OLPAS sets is the ability to be able to tailor the curriculum vitae for each intended application, ...
