Applications are now invited for our 2024 mini pupillage scheme.

Placements are for three days (Tuesday to Friday, any three days in accordance with the mini pupil’s preference) in London and take place for two separate weeks in June/July and again in September. Multiple mini pupils are accepted for each week. Each placement lasts for three days and we will try where we can to fit around any other commitments you may have. You will also be invited to an optional talk at the outset of your mini pupillage week, which you are welcome to attend in person or remotely. This is not compulsory.

We welcome mini pupils who have an interest in practising at the Bar in all or any of our specialist areas. Our general policy is to offer mini pupillages to candidates who are sufficiently advanced in their university or legal studies, or to those in another career who have a clear view of where their interests and abilities are likely to be focused, so that they may have a reasonably informed idea of their likely field or fields of practice.

We do offer limited funding for our mini pupillages. We request that you do not advise us as to whether this would be of assistance to you until the outcome of the shortlisting process and on successful application.

The deadline for applications to be received is 9am on Friday 1st March 2024 and your application must be made via our Application Form. This information is only accessible to our administrative team. We will undertake an anonymised shortlisting exercise and all candidates will be advised as to the status of their application by no later than 1st May 2024. 

You can complete the application form by clicking here.

If you have any additional information you wish to convey separately to the form, please do so in confidence to; Rebecca Hunter is the assistant to our Chambers Director who is responsible for the administration of our mini pupillage programme.

Chambers takes great care to ensure we provide equality of opportunity in all that we do, including access to experiences such as these. Part of that process is to make sure that we monitor equality and diversity information relating to our applicants. If you would be willing to complete our monitoring questionnaire, please do so by clicking here.

Please note that whilst we find this incredibly helpful, the information is entirely anonymous, it is not attributed to your application in any way, and if you choose not to participate in providing us with your information it has no impact on your application.

If you wish to speak in confidence to our Accessibility Officer, which is Sarah Earl, our Chambers Director, please email her separately on or you can contact her by telephone on 020 7269 0300.
