Mini Pupillage

1 Chancery Lane offers six mini-pupillages a year, each lasting for up to a week. 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 discuss the case with Counsel beforehand. You may also have the opportunity to tackle a set of papers.

Travel expenses to and from court are reimbursed.

We accept applications from university students or graduates.

Applications for our 2021 mini pupillage scheme are now closed.

We also work with various outreach schemes, including Inner Temple’s Pegasus Access and Support Scheme and Middle Temple’s Access to the Bar Awards to offer mini-pupillages.

We are committed to equality and to improving the diversity of our Chambers. We therefore encourage applications from people from groups which are underrepresented in Chambers including those with diverse ethnic and non-traditional backgrounds.

As we were unable to offer any mini-pupillages in 2020, 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. We will be running another Virtual Open Day in Autumn 2021. Details on how to register will be available here shortly.
