On Saturday 17 November 2018, Darren Snow together with pupils Nutan Fatania and Alexandra Monaghan, attended the Urban Lawyers Careers Conference. This event is aimed at aspiring solicitors and barristers from all backgrounds, with the goal of providing the students with advice and guidance in respect of their future careers. Hosted by Herbert Smith Freehills the event is led by Tunde Okewale MBE, founder of Urban Lawyers, himself a practising criminal barrister.
Throughout the morning, Darren, Nutan and Alexandra mingled with students at the Law Fair, answering questions on the nitty-gritty of life at the criminal Bar. In the afternoon, Darren, as a guest speaker, ran a workshop with the theme ‘How to Secure a Criminal Pupillage’. Darren’s talk focused what criminal chambers look for in a pupil, CV building, work experience and securing the crucial pupillage interview.
Urban Lawyers undertakes work promoting much needed diversity and social mobility within the legal profession and opens doors to those who may not otherwise consider a legal career. Charter Chambers is delighted to support Urban Lawyers’ work and ethos. We are committed to investing in the future of the Bar regardless of social or economic background. We are thrilled to have been invited to attend this event for a second year running.
