Concluded my last full week of second six Pupillage with an acquittal for a grateful and deserving client.

Having welcomed our new first six pupils into chambers yesterday evening, I can’t quite believe how fast time has gone. They fired questions at us, most identical to ones we had asked the previous year. I remember the same excitement, nerves, apprehension and generally not knowing what to expect. I remember the shoes I wore and how they gave me blisters!

Going on to do a third six and so the hard work continues. But the big Q* is pending. And it is exciting. And an achievement I feel.

Don’t have all the answers moving forward, but for now, for this moment in time- this is me. And I’m getting there.

Officially qualified on 1st October 2014.
