Ordinarily, mini-pupillage is compulsory. We only interview candidates who have completed, or been offered, a mini-pupillage in Chambers. In light of the disruption caused by COVID-19, for applications for pupillage starting in 2022, this requirement has been suspended.
We continue to offer virtual mini-pupillages, so please apply for these via our form. The deadlines for mini-pupillage applications are the end of November, January and June each year.
