Cheryl Jones and Mark Calway at the National Pupillage Fair
22nd December 2022
The National Pupillage Fair, which took place at The Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn last month, is one of the UK’s largest pupillage fairs attended by law students from across the country. As part of the Fair, a talks programme is offered, giving students an insight into all aspects of life at the Bar.
3PB’s head of pupillage and commercial/chancery barrister Cheryl Jones and family law barrister Mark Calway both took part in the Fair’s much-attended talks programme. Mark joined the Family Law panel to speak about his experiences at the family Bar and help students understand what it takes to be a family barrister.

Cheryl spoke on the “Be yourself at the Bar: diversity and perspectives on life as a barrister” panel. Presented by Cheryl and two fellow female barristers, the panel discussed their experiences of coming to the Bar, the support networks they have built, plus how the Bar has changed over time and what this might mean for obtaining pupillage.
