The F-LEX News Bulletin
We have really exciting news for all our Flexers that are looking for a career at the bar. We have a brand new podcast just for you.
The Pupillage Podcast is intended for law students, BPTC students, or anyone really who is considering a career at the bar. Beatrice Collier and Georgina Wolfe, from 5 Essex Court, speak to guests from the most junior of tenants, fresh out of pupillage, to the most senior of judges (e.g. the Lord Chief Justice; Lord Judge) and hear their advice and tips on how to get pupillage.
Each episode covers a different stage in the process, from starting to think about your CV to mini-pupillages, through to choosing your practice area and chambers, getting advocacy experience and then on to making applications and undertaking interviews.
So far Season 1 has had about 7,000 listens and has been favourably received if Twitter is anything to go by their twitter handle is @pupillagepodca1. They are currently recording Season 2 which will be released in September.
It is available on Spotify, SoundCloud, MixCloud and Apple Podcasts.
