Future Women in Criminal Law Night


For the last three years, Women in Criminal Law have been hosting Pupillage Night (or speed dating as you might remember it if you’ve been before!) for all prospective women in criminal law looking for pupillage in the New Year.

This year the new and improved version of Pupillage Night, welcomes both prospective pupils AND trainees alike!


Date: Tuesday 10th January 2023
Time: 6pm
Location: Mountford Chambers, 13 Ely Place, EC1N 6RY.

For one night only, WICL will be joined by an array of brilliant pupils and tenants from a selection of exceptional criminal Chambers, as well as current trainees and solicitors from top firms, who will speak about their journey to qualifying and their top-tips for applications.

This wealth of expertise (from those who have made applications recently or who have sat on interview panels!) will offer a broad range of perspectives which are the perfect opportunity for this year’s applicants to ask, take advice and learn.

The evening is a perfect chance for future women of criminal law applying for pupillage or training contracts, to meet women at different stages of their careers, who have been on both sides of the interview table and chat in an informal setting.

The event is free to attend and we expect it to be very popular.

To register, please email: confirming your name, whether you are applying for pupillage or a training contract and what stage you are at with applications.
