We aim to ensure that pupillage is a learning experience such that you improve during your time with us, building on your training at university and law school. With that in mind, your pupil supervisors will give you feedback on written work throughout your time with them.
You will also receive more formal feedback from the chair of the pupillage committee around 4 months into pupillage and again early in your second six, after your first written assessment has been completed.
Pupillage is not only about your written skills, however, and we run a series of 4 advocacy exercises. Whilst these are assessed, they are also intended as a learning experience and we ensure that after each exercise you are given detailed feedback and tips for improvement; we invariably find that pupils improve across the 4 exercises.
