Pegasus Access Scheme
The Inner Temple, in association with over fifty participating Chambers, has recently launched a scheme to help ensure that all students have the opportunity to undertake a mini-pupillage. University students from under-represented backgrounds in the profession are invited to apply and if successful will be placed with one of the participating Chambers. Applications are currently open for the autumn round, and will close on 12th October 2012. For more information please visit http://www.pegasus.me.
