Following discussion, Derek Wood QC was formally invited to Chair the Pupillage Review Working Group, and he has accepted the challenge. Continuity between thework of the BVC and Pupillage reviews is regarded as essential, as an ‘holistic’ run-through approach is taken to training for the Bar. The Pupillage Review will get underway in autumn 2008 and is expected to take approximately one year before reporting to the BSB in autumn 2009.
