    Curious as to what effect pupillage will have on applicants with non-UK citizenship?
    I think this depends a lot on your visa status. If you're on a student visa, you are likely going to struggle because you will not only need to convince chambers of your commitment to pursuing a career in the UK, but also that you're worth them going through the rigmarole of sponsoring you on a Tier 2 visa. They would need to get on the list of approved sponsors, which isn't impossible but it does cost money and takes time. This is a huge topic area - I'd suggest getting in touch with the BSB for a more in-depth discussion.

    Note that some chambers flat out refuse to sponsor (Matrix is one of them). That being said, if you're on a spousal visa or something else that allows you to work without restrictions, you'll be absolutely fine.

    Nothing from either one.

    Starting to wonder if sets will withdraw their offers of pupillage in the wake of the current economic disaster...

    For those with first round interviews at Matrix, did anyone think to ask when we would hear about second rounds? I completely forgot!

    Family sets should be safe.

    Last year my Red Lion app stayed as "Under Consideration" throughout the process, however I received a first round interview.

    As we all know, history doesn't count for much in many of these scenarios, so not trying to get any hopes up unnecessarily! Just thought this may be of interest.
    Further to this, Red Lion 1st rounds now out

    My GW did that for a different set as well. I think it's just a glitch!
