Mini-Pupillage

Undertaking a mini-pupillage is the best way to find out about the day-to-day life of a barrister in private practice. It is hoped that a mini-pupil at Selborne Chambers will have the opportunity to experience both Court and Chambers-based work, with a number of members.

Mini-pupillages last two days. They are not assessed. Mini-pupils will typically undertake a piece of written work (you will normally be given an advice to draft) and attend court with a member of chambers on one or two days. Your supervisor will talk to you about the process/ answer any questions you have. We will also try to arrange a lunch with other members of chambers in hall.

About you

Applicants for a mini-pupillages should be, at least, in the final year of their law degree or, alternatively, about to undertake or in the process of undertaking their law conversion. Owing to the considerable number of applications we receive, the following deadlines will apply:

Deadlines

  • 30th June for mini-pupillages between 1st September and 31st December
  • 31st January for mini-pupillages between 1st April and 31st July
