Background Image

‘My supervisors were wholeheartedly committed to helping me improve and gave me detailed feedback on my work. I enjoyed the breadth and depth of the work I saw during pupillage, which were mostly ‘live’ work on my supervisor’s on-going cases. The learning curve is steep and it was a demanding year, but also a very rewarding one.’

Former Pupil, 2018-19
