Mini Pupillage

Apply for work experience with Cornwall Street Barristers

Our Mini-pupillages

We are committed to being able to support those who are interested in a career at the Bar by being able to offer up to 12 unfunded mini-pupillages a year for a period of 3 days. Applications are encouraged from those who are at undergraduate or post-graduate level.

Applications are welcome at any time throughout the year but will be kept on file and considered quarterly. In assessing candidates for mini-pupillage, a member of the Recruitment Committee will consider the intellectual achievement, motivation for a career at the Bar and the interest in Chambers of the applicant, together with the written communication skills demonstrated by the CV and covering letter. In the event of two or more suitable candidates applying for the same available time, preference will be given to candidates without previous mini-pupillage experience.

How to Apply

Applicants should attach a CV together with a covering letter explaining what areas of law they are interested in and why they want to do a mini-pupillage at Cornwall Street Barristers. They should then email this to the Senior Practice Manager, Matt Fleming, at, including ‘Mini-Pupillage’ in the subject line.

We also invite applicants to include details of their availability for the following 12 months and be sure to include which of our offices they are hoping to complete their mini-pupillage at.
