    Nothing yet - feeling very impatient! I know it's only one round, but if they want to offer on 2nd Aug they'll need to hurry up...
    I agree!

    30 Park Place chambers - interview invites out by email.
    Has anyone else heard from 30 Park Place? I haven't heard anything, which is a bit sad because I thought I was definitely in with a chance there.

    I got asked at the end of my 2nd round "is it OK if we contact you by email?"

    Pupillage offers are never made by email, right?

    Well I checked out the 2011 thread and offers were made by telephone. So I reckon the panel were putting me out of my misery. That's actually quite nice of them.

    Don't be so pessimistic. They might try to contact you by phone and not get an answer. Some chambers don't like leaving messages, so they're just checking that you will be monitoring your emails regularly when/if an offer comes through.


    Chin up andymt, confidence and hope will help you through.

    Hi InnerTemple
    I applied as well but I've not heard anything except for an acknowledgement email. Good to see I'm not the only one in the dark!

    Huzzah!

    I am rather concerned, since the pupillage is to start in August of this year. I did have the awful feeling that they may have someone in mind already and are just advertising to follow the formalities etc.

    We shall see - good luck!

    On the portal it said October 2013..... I'm sure of it. Plus I put it on the email I sent with my application attached.

    But yeah let's just wait and see!

    I think you are right. I remember getting confused about this before. On portal it says 2013:

    However when looking at chambers info, it states August 2012:

    I came to the conclusion that chambers info was incorrect, possibly a sloppy copy and paste job.

    Even if they made offers by phone last year things can vary from year to year as the members of the Pupillage Committee/the person with responsibility for telling candidates changes. As the others have said, don't make assumptions

    rejection from APEX by email - portal also updated with rejection......
    Sorry to hear that I've not heard anything, so I will give them a call next week.

    Apparently Iscoed interview invitations are out now.

    Still nothing from Angel?
