    Hi Guys,

    I have a pupillage interview at Colleton Chambers, has anyone had an interview there before and is able to help me with it? Any help will be much appreciated and will return the favor in anyway I can


    I'd post this in the main pupillage thread if you haven't already, as that tends to be where most people ask about past pupillage interviews.

    One note of caution, though, is that there is no guarantee that pupillage interviews in the same set will be the same year to year in terms of format or content. Certain sets do have similar processes (such as assessment days or assessed mini pupillages), but particularly with smaller regional sets (of which Colleton is one) there is perhaps a higher risk that any feedback you can be given from previous years' applicants may not be of any practical use to you this year.

    Another wider point is that I do have some doubts as to how useful such feedback is even if there is some accuracy to it, because at the very least substantive questions will change year to year, and really if you are a good enough candidate you should be able to adapt to what is thrown at you in these situations. To that end I'm not entirely convinced that getting feedback from others will actually give you any notable advantage, though of course I understand why you'd think it would, and I'm sure there are examples where people feel that such feedback has helped them. Perhaps to that end this is all just me being a bit cynical.

    Best of luck with your interview
