Every April, hundreds of new barristers (aka ‘pupils’) start taking on their own cases in the UK. 🐣🌞🌱

In this short vlog, I give some insights into what it’s really like to run your first legal case.

The transition from studying law to practising it with a real client can be a huge challenge. Barrister’s training (called ‘pupillage’) can be daunting, but there are practical ways to manage these issues and heaps of good advice out there for those who seek it.

Here, I share my journey and explain why it’s so important to reach out to colleagues and supporters for help whenever you need it (and however long you’ve been in practice).
