Chambers offers non-assessed mini-pupillages to those who would like to gain experience of life in a Chancery set.
Mini-pupillages will generally take place over 2 days. As a mini-pupil you will sit with a member of Chambers and look at the work undertaken by him or her.
Candidates must have either completed at least the first year of a law degree or applied for or obtained a place on a Graduate Law Diploma course by the time of applying for mini-pupillage.
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 ask that prospective applicants read this information before applying.
Please note that the current uncertainty around Covid-19 means that the timing and format of mini-pupillages may be subject to change. We would still encourage you to apply and if a normal mini-pupillage proves to be impossible, we will provide alternative opportunities for you to meet members of Chambers and learn about our work virtually.
We invite mini-pupils to attend in three specific time periods in the year. Applications should be made by the following deadlines:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and title your email ‘mini-pupillage application’.
Chambers offers to reimburse reasonable travel expenses for mini-pupils who live some distance away from Chambers and are experiencing hardship: for further details, please see our Pupillage and Junior Recruitment Policy.
Ten Old Square is committed to equality of opportunity and to diversity amongst our members, clerks, staff, pupils and mini-pupils.
Please note that the current uncertainty around Covid-19 means that the timing and format of mini-pupillages may be subject to change. We would still strongly encourage you to apply and we hope to be able to offer a mini-pupillage in an alternative format if circumstances make the usual format difficult to deliver.
