Mini-pupillage

We hope that time spent with us as a mini-pupil will give you valuable insight into the realities of life at the Bar in the areas of law in which we practise and of course life in Landmark Chambers in particular. We offer approximately 50 mini-pupillages per year of between 3-5 days duration.

We do not assess mini-pupils in any way and mini-pupillage does not form part of our pupillage selection process. Our pupillage selection is through Pupillage Gateway.

What to expect

To help ensure you get the most out of your time with us we will assign you to a junior member of Chambers to act as a mini-pupil supervisor for the week. They will be responsible for ensuring that you see a broad cross-section of work.

As far as possible we will place you with someone practising in an area, or areas, in which you are interested. The aim is to give you a chance to see the type of work that you would experience as a junior tenant.  Given the importance of written work we may also be able to give you the opportunity to assist with research or drafting in Chambers.

How to apply

We operate three mini-pupillage seasons per year: February-March; May-June and October-November. There are approximately 15-20 places available for each season and, due to the limited number of places available preference is given to third year law undergraduates or those on the GDL course.

If you would like to apply, please send a full CV and separate covering letter, alongside a completed Equal Opportunities Form, to minipupillage@landmarkchambers.co.uk. The name of the documents should take the following format: ‘[candidates’ name] – [CV/Covering Letter]’ i.e. Carolyn Entwistle – CV.
