  1. Being a good pupil – what do pupil supervisors want from a pupil?
  2. How to manage relationships with supervisors (esp. asking for and getting feedback timeously), clerks, other members of chambers (i.e. getting positive exposure to all of chambers).
  3. Managing a remote pupillage / participating in remote chambers life.
  4. Handling formal assessments during pupillage. 
  5. The resources available (people will probably know about the various libraries, but some have specialist collections, which may be less well-known).
  6. Keeping on top of relevant Bar Council/BSB paperwork.
  7. How to make the most of the various courses that pupils have to go on.
  8. Wellness/saying no. 
  9. Preparing for practice in due course, including taxes/accounts, wigs & gowns etc. This topic obviously becomes more relevant as people begin their second six or get towards the end of pupillage, depending on whether they have a practising second six. We could also consider running a ‘new tenants’ event in, say, 12 months’ time?
  10. Encouragement to get involved in ChBA events (including the JCB) and of course CLIPS.
  11. Mentoring scheme.
