Pupillage inside out

3 June 2013 by

Pupillage Inside OutWith no apologies, I would like shamelessly to promote my chambers colleague Isabel McArdle and Daniel K. Sokol of 12 KBW’s splendid new pupillage guide, Pupillage Inside OutAt £14.95 it is a steal – order now here (wig not included).

Isabel is a regular contributor to UKHRB and Daniel has contributed a number of times in the past. Below are some more details, including how you can get on the guest list for the glamorous* launch party:

Are you an aspiring barrister, on the hunt for pupillage or about to embark on it this year?

Pupillage Inside Out – comprehensively covering the pupillage year itself – is now out. Written by barristers Isabel McArdle of 1 Crown Office Row, and Daniel Sokol of 12 KBW, the book also covers pupillage applications and interviews, but the bulk of it concerns the pupillage year itself and the hunt for the all-important tenancy.

Pupillage is a complex process. It involves simultaneously learning, practising, and impressing. Yet, a pupil needs more than legal knowledge and intellectual ability. A successful pupillage depends in part on how well you interact with members of Chambers, pupils, clerks and solicitors. In addition to showing great promise, you must be a colleague that others would want to have around and work with.

The authors wanted to share their experiences, but also contacted dozens of current and recent pupils, from all areas of practice, along with clerks, and supervisors, and interviewed them about pupillage.  Their quotes are interspersed in the book and give a wide range of perspectives, including insider tips on the secretive and often peculiar world that is the Bar of England and Wales.

The authors have organised an informal launch party next Friday evening (7th June 2013) near the Inner Temple to celebrate the publication of the book.  Places are limited but if any prospective pupils wish to attend, they can get touch at this email address: sokol@12kbw.co.uk.  There will be plenty of opportunity to ask barristers questions in an informal setting.

Pupillage Inside Out (2013) is published by Sweet & Maxwell.

* Well, glamorous-ish
