Exchange Chambers hailed as a “standout set for pupillage as well as practice” at Virtual Mini-Pupillage Forum
July 1, 2020
Over a hundred aspiring barristers last night took part in Chambers’ Virtual Mini-Pupillage forum, with Exchange hailed as a “standout set for pupillage as well as practice”.
After an introduction from David Temkin, members of Chambers provided their own personal insight on life at the Bar. Joel Finnan covered life as a junior commercial tenant, Sarah Griffin provided her thoughts on life as a junior criminal tenant while Alex Williams spoke about life as a junior personal injury tenant.
The oversubscribed event concluded with an informal question and answer session with Exchange Chambers’ current pupils – Jodie Wildridge, Harriet Lavin, Trudi Moore and Katherine Traynor – providing their thoughts.
The feedback to the event was universally positive with Exchange Chambers hailed as a “standout set for pupillage as well as practice”.
Others praised “the diverse nature of Exchange” adding that “this is no ordinary set in any sense of the word; in part demonstrated by their tangible commitment to diversity at the Bar.” Exchange was also credited for “adapting to the current situation through holding virtual events”.
Exchange Chambers plans to hold more virtual events for aspiring barristers in the coming months. All information will be posted on our website.
