    I've got a clash in the morning of Saturday 4th June: supposed to be interviewing at No5 in Birmingham and Three Raymond Buildings in London. Anyone got an afternoon appointment at either they'd care to swap with me for? I'd be very grateful!

    Definitely! Starting to wonder if it's a silent rejection...

    Thanks for the info! Sounds like hope hasn't been lost yet then

    Does anybody have experience of a first round at 5kbw they could share?
    First Round is a 10 mins advocacy exercise. Last year it was about whether or not there should be a UK bill of rights or not, together with discussions on who the odd one out on a list of names they provided was, and why you thought so.

    Then there is general discussion with a panel of 3 about your CV and going through your application form.

    2nd Round is an advocacy exercise. Last year was a sentencing hearing - acting for the prosecution.

    Hi guys!

    I've been part of this group for the last three years. Last year I was lucky enough to get pupillage and I know that without the support of this group I wouldn't have always stayed sane (jury may still be out as to whether I am or not!). I remember often thinking that the success stories were certainly not going to be me in a few years - pupillage hunting can be really soul destroying that way. Then I became lucky enough to be in an incredible position and I got pupillage. I'm sure for so many of you, you will be in the same position in the future (whether that's a year or three from now).

    Anyway, I always found it massively helpful to talk to people who'd done interviews at different sets so I thought I would offer my advice too. I've done first, second and third rounds at various places (all either criminal or mixed; London and regional).

    I'll try to keep an eye out for any questions I can hopefully answer/give my tuppence for but if anyone wants to talk I'd be happy to.

    If anyone wants to know where I've interviewed just let me know .

    Thank you for your incredibly kind advice and optimistic post. I'd be grateful to know where you interviewed, if in case we have any crossovers!

    Many thanks again. All the best.
    Thank you! I've seen you on TSR a fair bit and I always wondered in interview waiting rooms whether I was talking to various people I knew on TSR...

    I'll post here as a couple of people have asked so it's probably easier than sending out a bunch of individual messages

    I interviewed at:
    1COR Brighton (2nd rounds)
    25 Bedford Row (up to 3rd rounds)
    2 Bedford Row (1st rounds)
    Atkinson Bevan (1st rounds)
    Goldsmith (1st rounds)
    John Coffey (single round)
    Red Lion (1st rounds and single round - 2014 was a two round process, 2015 was single)
    187 Fleet St (2nd rounds)
    Carmelite (2nd rounds)
    15 Winckley Square (Preston) (single round)
    St Johns Buildings (Mancs) (1st rounds)
    Lincoln House (Mancs) (2nd rounds)
    KBW Leeds (2nd rounds)
    New Park Court (Leeds) (1st rounds)
    Dere St (Newcastle) (1st rounds)
    Trinity (Newcastle) (2nd rounds)

    Edit: This sent accidentally before I could say good luck this year!!
