We try to ensure that mini-pupils spend as much time in court with members of Chambers as possible. This will usually involve an opportunity to read the brief and discuss the case with Counsel beforehand and generally, mini-pupils tackle at least one set of papers during the week. Travel expenses to and from court are reimbursed.
Applications should be made to Jenny Fensham by way of a curriculum vitae and a covering letter explaining why you wish to have a mini-pupillage at 1 Chancery Lane. We will accept applications from 1st January until 31st March for each year’s intake. You will be advised during May if you have secured a place.
As we are unable to offer any mini pupillages this year owing to covid-19, we hosted a Virtual Open Day on 29th July for aspiring barristers to hear from some members of 1 Chancery Lane and ask them any questions they had. If you missed the Open Day, you can view it here on our YouTube channel.
