Feedback from Geeta Koska, who completed pupillage in 2019:

During pupillage I received incredible legal training, and gained exposure to numerous practice areas, including crime, immigration, housing, and community care, with a strong emphasis on legal aid work. I was supported by a generous network of pupil supervisors, mentors, staff and members. The breadth of work which I encountered has positioned me well to assist clients in resolving interdisciplinary legal problems, whilst also achieving a good grounding in the legal principles and procedures peculiar to specialist areas like immigration and housing.

What I valued most was being able to observe members of Chambers applying the law to promote and protect civil, political, economic and social rights. From challenging discriminatory housing policies to fighting against unlawful deportations, members have furthered my belief that the law is an effective instrument to fight for accountability and justice. Overall, pupillage was a challenging but rewarding experience and all the members of 1MCB Chambers have been critical in sustaining and encouraging me in my development as a barrister.
