Tim, aged 27, is a pupil barrister. His workload varies depending on what is happening in the chambers. He could be asked to do research for a senior lawyer or he could be representing his own client in court. He talks about working with clients, the tactics needed to fight a case and what he regards as a good outcome. He explains the qualification and training process and the challenges of getting a place in chambers.
