BSB seeking views on pupillage recruitment and advertising timetable – Bar Standards Board

‘The Bar Standards Board (BSB) is writing to key stakeholders to ask whether it should be made mandatory for Chambers and other Authorised Education and Training Organisations (AETOs) providing the pupillage / work-based learning component of Bar training to bring their recruitment timetable into line with the Pupillage Gateway. Currently, the gateway timetable is between November and May. All pupillages must currently be advertised on the Gateway but the BSB believes that obliging all those offering pupillage to recruit to the same timetable would make recruitment fairer for all candidates.’
