Mini Pupillage

We offer 3 day mini-pupillages at our Birmingham chambers to applicants over the age of 18.

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, but we also hope it will be an enjoyable experience.

How should I make an application?
