Career Clinic: Is London the be-all and end-all for a Bar career?
"Having just finished pupillage at a good set of chambers in the provinces, I have been offered tenancy. I have also been offered a third six pupillage at a smaller set of chambers in London, where I ultimately want to return and practise. Should I take the tenancy and stay in the provinces for a few years before returning, or take the third six back in London and risk being unemployed next March? I like where I am, but don't want to stay forever and am worried that if I do take tenancy, I'll be stuck there for good. On the other hand, I know it is foolish to turn down a tenancy in the current climate and that there is a chance I may not get tenancy at the end of the third six in London. What would you do?"
