Pupillage for trio of Law School graduates

Three Law School graduates have beaten off some stiff competition to get a pupillage, the vocational year of training required in order to become a practising barrister.

One of the three, Abi Scott (pictured), will be starting at Ropewalk Chambers in Nottingham in October 2019.

She said: “The pupillage application process rigorously tests candidates’ written and oral advocacy, intellectual ability and commitment to a career at the Bar. It is also fiercely competitive. That three OU Law students have gained pupillage this year is testament to the strength of an OU degree when viewed against the backdrop of balancing work and family life.

“It is also significant that each of us have been involved in mooting with the OU Law Society and enjoyed success in national competitions. In my view, this provided an objective measure of our ability against other candidates who took more traditional routes to the Bar.”

Peter Savory (Farrar’s Building) and Joseph Thomas (Landmark Chambers) have also gained pupillage.
