Pupillage Advocacy Session


On the 10th March 2022, we were delighted to collaborate with 5KBWFurnival Chambers & 2 Bedford Row, for a pupillage advocacy session at Inner London Crown Court. We were lucky enough to have the use of two courtrooms for a range of exercises including, breaches, applications, mitigation and sentencing. The standard of advocacy was exceptionally high from all the pupils involved.  

Mountford’s Colin Aylott KC played the role of Judge, and oversaw the pupils shape their submissions. He said, “Training and mentoring aspiring new barristers to develop their advocacy skills is an important part of Chambers’ ethos, and we are always pleased to be involved in initiatives that focus on nurturing the talents of the next generation of barristers.”

Thank you to Orla O’Sullivan and the organisers from the sets involved. A special thanks to ‘Team Mountford’ Alan Kent KCAlexandra ScottSebastian WinnettFiona Clegg and Benjamin Brown for their support and encouragement of the pupils.
