Mini Pupillage


We offer 3 day Mini-Pupillages at our Birmingham location to applicants who are in at least the second year of their undergraduate degree.

Applicants wishing to change from another career will be expected to have a clear view of their abilities and how these can be transferred to a successful career at the Bar.

If I am successful, what will I be doing during my 3 days at St Philips?

We hope you will spend most, or all, of your time within your preferred specialist practice area of law. However, due to the fast-changing nature of our business, it is not always possible to secure your time within your preferred area, in which case we will find you a suitable alternative.

We hope you will spend time with more than one Barrister; shadowing their daily schedules and spending time with them in court, in order to really get a feel for the profession.

Through our mini pupillages you will gain a good understanding of roles and responsibilities and life at the Bar.

How should I make an application?

The closing date for applications, for placements throughout 2023, will be 10th October 2022.

We will aim to acknowledge receipt of your application within one week of receiving it.  We hope to let you know if you have been successful or not by 20th December 2022.
