Aneesah Asif, one of our Law students at Staffordshire University, was invited to attend the Henderson Chambers Pupillage event on 25th November 2017 in London. Attendees had to submit an application in order to be selected and there was a limited number of spaces available.
Aneesah commented on the event, stating “It was a fantastic networking event to meet other students as well as Barristers who were more than happy to provide you with information about the Bar course and tips in gaining a Pupillage.
There were many other students from Russell group Universities, including Cambridge, and the fact that I wasn’t from a Russell Group University I felt very privileged that I was given the opportunity to go.
Attending this event and speaking to members of the Chambers really gave me an insight of what it would be like doing the bar course and what a career as a Barrister would entail.
Overall the experience was fantastic and has opened up further opportunities relating to my career and made me think about the options that are available. I strongly advise other students who do want to pursue a career in law to attend events like this, because it gives you a real insight and can help. I just want to say thank you for advertising opportunities like this. I really appreciate it.”
