Pupilage Groups

Pupilage groups should gather to share stories, build mentoring and networking relationships, learn about different practice areas, discuss ways to advance professionalism and ethical practices, and develop presentation skills.

What is a Pupilage Group?

A pupilage group is a team of 7-15 members with a mix of Students, Associates, Barristers, Masters, and Judges. During the Inn season, each group should:

  • Meet regularly. (Ideally, Pupilage Groups should be meeting at least once a month, even after they present their CLE.)
  • Plan and present 1-hour CLE
  • Complete a Community Service Project of some sort together.
