BACFI Student evening
21st October 2020
Our annual student event in conjunction with City Law School took place via Microsoft Teams. Chaired by Alexandria Carr, the event attracted students from various universities who gained valuable insights into how to enter and be successful at the Employed Bar.
Barry Harwood of Harwood Law began with outlining what makes a great CV and advising that the document is a living one which needs continuously updating and also that you can have several different versions to fit specific roles being applied for. He also spoke about pupillage interviews and how to be successful.
Barry was followed by a Q and A session from our panel of BACFI committee members: Sonia Hayes, Ryan Porter, Patrick Rappo, Ian Brookes-Howells and Gaynor Wood. Questions from how best to find a pupillage (research where you are applying, be yourself and have some knowledge of a recent case) to “did you have a career plan?” (some did and others didn’t but everyone made the most of opportunities which arose along the way) were discussed along with issues such as diversity and equality, what being an Employed Barrister is all about and practical tips on how to succeed at the Employed Bar.
