Apprentice's De Lacy-Brown: Securing a pupillage was harder than confronting Sir Alan
I'm not sure there is a massive Oxbridge bias anymore
Securing pupillage nowadays - in my opinion - has very little to do with whether or not you have a degree from Oxbridge. Having secured pupillage in London after only my fifth interview I was very fortunate. Neither I nor the other pupil in my chambers has Oxbridge degrees but we fit in. Yes you have to be clever and chambers need to make sure you can do the work but it's also about being the sort of person that chambers can tolerate and get on with. Perhaps that's why - even with Mr Brown's outstanding academic achievements - it took him a few more attempts!
