Mini-pupillage

We reserve 3 mini-pupillages for applicants from groups that are under-represented at the Bar. Recipients of reserved mini-pupillages will be guaranteed a first-round interview should they apply for pupillage in the recruitment cycle immediately following their mini-pupillage offer.

You are eligible to apply for a reserved mini-pupillage if you went to a state secondary school and:

  • Neither of your parents went to university; or
  • Anyone in your immediate family has received state benefits at any point; or
  • You were ever eligible for free school meals; or
  • You have been in care; or
  • You have caring responsibilities; or
  • You have refugee status

Applications for these reserved mini-pupillages must be submitted between 1 and 30 November, and you must indicate in your covering letter or email that your application is for a reserved mini-pupillage. Otherwise the application process is the same as above, and you will be considered for an unreserved mini-pupillage even if you do not secure a reserved mini-pupillage. You may apply for a reserved mini-pupillage whether or not you have ever applied for an unreserved mini-pupillage.

Recipients of reserved mini-pupillages will be guaranteed a first-round interview should they apply for pupillage in the recruitment cycle immediately following their mini-pupillage offer.

We particularly encourage applications for pupillage and mini-pupillage from female, BAME, and disabled candidates.
