Aspiring barristers are set to get a glimpse into what life is like for a pupil at a new careers fair organised by The Chancery Bar Association (ChBA).
The fair, aimed at both undergraduates and Bar Vocational Course students, will offer informal one-to-one discussions with practising members of the Chancery Bar.
Michael Todd QC, chairman of the ChBA said: “The Chancery Bar offers a diverse and stimulating career in an intellectually challenging environment providing practical solutions to legal problems.”
The event, which will be held at the Old Hall, Lincoln’s Inn, will include talks on different aspects of chancery practice such as life as a pupil in Chancery Chambers and the early years at the Chancery Bar.
The aspiring barristers will also get the opportunity to meet and speak to a number of chambers taking part in the fair, on 26 February, including Essex Court Chambers, 4 New Square and Serle Court.
The Chancery Bar specialises in advocacy, mediation and advisory work, often focusing on areas such as finance, banking, mergers, acquisitions, insolvency and pension trusts.
