The Bar Council’s Education and Training Committee and the Young Barristers’ Committee setup a working group to look at third six pupillages and are seeking views on best practice and potential reform.
The issues surround third six pupillages are well-known, and are very well explained in an article written by Rupert Jones, a barrister at Citadel Chambers and member of the YBC. His views, and the 6-week consultation were also featured in Legal Futures.
The Bar Council and the YBC would be very grateful if anyone who has undertaken a third six pupillage, or similar, could fill in the survey which can be found at:
The survey is easy to complete and should not take longer than 5-7 minutes. There is also a survey for Chambers to complete and I would ask that you encourage the relevant member of your Chambers’ pupillage committee or administrator to do so.
All responses are anonymous and it will help us greatly in developing policy and bringing about change in this important area.
