Mini-pupillages generally last for two days and, save in exceptional circumstances, take place in specific weeks in April, July, November and December of each year. We aim to take 10 mini-pupils per week.

All applications received will be treated as applications for the specific mini-pupillage weeks. However, where there are extenuating circumstances we will endeavour to make adjustments to this time-table if possible.  If you have any questions please do contact Ella Igbiaye, our Administrator, by email at

Mini-pupillages do not involve formal assessment but we do record and provide you with some feedback on your likely suitability for pupillage in Chambers. Mini-pupillages are not a pre-requisite for a pupillage application. However, we encourage applicants to do a mini-pupillage in Chambers. We believe they provide a fantastic opportunity to get an understanding of the work we do here and, perhaps even more importantly, an opportunity to meet members of Chambers and get a feel for the working environment.

If applicants have any particular requirements or interests they should make this clear on the application form (as to which see below). Where possible we will then make necessary arrangements prior to the mini-pupillage.
