Chambers offers non-assessed mini-pupillages to those who would like to gain experience of life in a Chancery set.

Mini-pupillages will last for a period of up to 2-3 days. As a mini-pupil you will sit with a member of Chambers and look at the work undertaken by him or her.

Further information about mini-pupillage can be found in our Pupillage and Junior Recruitment Policy which can be downloaded from the Pupillage page of this website.

We invite mini-pupils to attend in three specific time periods in the year. Applications should be made by the following deadlines:

  • For mini-pupillages in December, applications must be made by 15 October.
  • For mini-pupillages in March or April, applications must be made by 7 January.
  • For mini-pupillages in September, applications must be made by 15 July.

Applications cannot be considered for the relevant mini-pupillage period after the deadline has passed but will be considered for the next mini-pupillage period.

Applications should be made using the attached application form.

Please note that we are unable to consider CVs and covering letters. Please send applications to and title your email ‘mini-pupillage application’.

Those candidates who are invited for a mini-pupillage, who live some distance away from Chambers and who are experiencing hardship may make a request to the Mini-Pupillage Secretary by email for payment of, or a contribution to, their reasonable travel expenses within the UK of attending the mini-pupillage. Each request will be considered by the Mini-Pupillage Secretary and responded to in a timely manner.

Ten Old Square is committed to equality of opportunity and to diversity amongst our members, clerks, staff, pupils and mini-pupils.
