Chambers also offers a limited number of mini-pupillages each year, usually for one week. Mini-pupillage is work experience with a barrister, offering you an excellent opportunity to make an informed decision about whether a career as a barrister is for you.
You will have the opportunity to attend court or other hearings, to work on legal research in Chambers, to attend conferences and to discuss your prospective route to the Bar. Successful applicants will sign a confidentiality undertaking upon arrival.
Mini pupillages run between April and September, all applications must be received between 1st October and 31st January for the following year. We will inform you by 1st March if your application has been successful. Any applications received after 31st January will be considered for the next available period.
You must be at least 18 years old at the time of commencing the mini-pupillage. There is no formal interview, and mini-pupillages at Becket Chambers are not assessed.
We do not expect you to have completed a mini-pupillage with Chambers if you later apply for pupillage.
To apply, send your CV and covering letter by email for the attention of the Mini Pupillage co-ordinator. Contact us.
