At New Square Chambers a limited number of two day mini-pupillages are available. We encourage those considering a pupillage with us to undertake a mini-pupillage, although it is not a requirement.


What we look for in applicants

Applicants must have at least completed the second year of their law degree or, if they are not yet studying law, the third year of their degree. You will be expecting to obtain a first or good upper second degree, though not necessarily in law.

Mini-Pupillage Structure

Work you may do whilst on mini-pupillage varies; you may go to court with a barrister, review papers or attend a conference or a mediation. The intention is that you will see a cross-section of working life at the Chancery Bar and have the opportunity to talk to one or more of the junior members. We offer around 12 mini-pupillages per year.

How to apply

Applications must be made in the following manner:


  • Applications may only be made between 1st August and 30th September in any given year.
  • Applications should be made via the Chambers’ mini-pupillage application form and saved in MS Word format
  • Applications may only be made by email and should be sent to with “Mini-Pupillage application” as the subject heading
  • The application email should consist only of the completed application form attached as an MS Word Document. There is no need for any further text.
