Mini-Pupillage

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 form.

Please note that we are unable to consider CVs and covering letters. Please send applications to minipupillage@tenoldsquare.com 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.
