In recent feedback, attendees have commented:

“The FTB webinar programme during lockdown has been brilliant – something to look forward to each week/the new Netflix!”

“Whilst a ‘needs must’ situation it is impressive that FTB is achieving high quality and effective CPD, using the (now almost taken for granted) technology with great content”

Virtual Mini Pupillage Day

Are you interested in public and administrative law, environmental law, or the legal process governing what gets built where and how? Then you may be interested in a career at the public and environmental Bar.

There will also be opportunities to take part in interactive advocacy exercises, discuss leading cases Chambers has been involved in and ask any burning questions about FTB, pupillage and the Bar in general.
