Podcast 33: Simon Myerson QC on Pupillage and how to get it… – Charon QC Blog

“Today I am talking to Simon Myerson QC, a member of Park Court Chambers in Leeds and author of the very useful blog ‘Pupillage and How to get it’. Simon is well qualified to give advice, which he does generously on his blog, having practised at the Bar for over twenty years and served as Head of Pupillage in his Chambers until 2003. Although he states on his blog that his experience is provincial rather than metropolitan, the advice given on his blog, structured in a logical and progressive way in the contents, will be of value to all who are contemplating a career at the Bar.”
