Quadrant Chambers will be holding a virtual speed moot and pupillage open evening for law students and society members on Wednesday 11th January 2023.

The pupillage open evening will feature workshops and talks covering pupillage, life at Quadrant and the commercial bar, and other relevant topics.

Talks include:

  • Session 1 – Celine Honey and Sam Mitchell - "Talks on Pupillage"
  • Session 2 – Poonam Melwani KC and Ruth Hosking - “Is the Commercial Bar for everyone?”
  • Session 3 - Koye Akoni – “The application process and some helpful tips”
  • Session 4 - Robert-Jan Temmink KC - "Being a commercial barrister"

The Speed Moot will be individual, with each participant preparing both sides of a short moot problem based on contract law, and 7 minutes allowed per participant per round with a total of 6 rounds for the most successful mooters. Applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis, up to a maximum of 64 + 8 reserves. Applications open from 10am on Monday 7th November. To increase access, there is a limit on the number of accepted applications taken from each institution.

The moot problem and full instructions will be provided by 4.30pm on Monday 9th January 2023. We anticipate preparation of about half a day will be needed but with no additional research being necessary. The moots will all be judged by Members of Quadrant and mooters will be given feedback on their performance.

The speed moot is open to any students who are thinking of applying for pupillage in Feb 2023 for the 2024 pupillage round. Good luck!

Please note that all the places for the moot have now been allocated. There is still an opportunity to attend the workshops and talks on pupillage and life at the Commercial Bar and Quadrant Chambers.

    Quadrant Chambers is committed to improving access and increasing the diversity of pupillage candidates that apply to Quadrant Chambers. To assist us we will send out an anonymous survey to those that apply which we would really appreciate candidates completing.
