Scott Sharp recently spoke at the Bar Council’s Pupillage Fair.
The theme of his talk was confronting disabilities in Pupillage Applications. The session explored the various issues applicants with disabilities encounter, offered advice as to how applicants should approach both their interviews and applications and, more generally, how to engage with Chambers if you have a disability.
Scott was asked to speak on these topics at the Bar Council’s Pupillage Fair because he is a proud member of the Bar Council’s Disability Panel. The Panel includes barristers with a range of disabilities and expertise in disability issues and provides support to barristers and pupils with disabilities.
