    My fellow applicants,

    It is time.

    A few deadlines are just around the corner, and this seems to be the sort of time of year at which these threads are started, so I thought we may as well get one underway.

    I know there are at least a few of us on here looking to apply, but I'm sure there will be a few lurkers around too by this time of year (at least, if the viewing figures on our mini-pupillage thread are anything to go by), so why not say hi?

    I know I'm a bit of a stickler, but since 2009 the thread has been called:

    "The Pupillage Interview/Acceptance/Rejection Thread 201x"

    Could it be labelled as such please? This just makes it easier to keep an eye out for when looking on TSR.
    Just trying to keep you on your toes.

    Oh, didn't know it was happening, so probably not.

    You've already done minis at pretty much every set anyway, so I'm not sure what you'll gain

    Here's the website:

    Haha true, though the talks should be interesting. If nothing else, then saying hi to people (and seeing who remembers you) is never a bad idea. Though you're right - if I didn't already live in London, I don't think I'd bother!

    I can't speak for other sets, but I know that a couple of barristers from my (non-London) Chambers are heading down to the fair. Assuming other sets approach it in a similar way it would at the very least appear to be a good potential networking opportunity. I can entirely understand people not wanting to incur a lot of time and expense attending something like this, but if you do live in and around London and it's an accessible event for you, it strikes me as a pretty good use of your time.

    Seems to be a big advantage. Accessing all the stuff from Up North is such a pain.

    Went to the pupillage fair today, and as predicted, it was definitely quite useful for networking purposes, as well as for asking any questions of specific sets re their own processes, etc. Also a point to note, a lot of the sets have changed their pupillage application deadlines this year, so keep an eye out!
