Mini Pupillage

Our application window for mini-pupillages in Summer 2024 has now closed.

Thank you to all those that have applied.

We look forward to welcoming applications for 2025. Please keep an eye on our website for future updates and details.


The aim of our mini-pupillage programme is to help candidates decide whether a career at the independent Bar is for them. It exposes candidates to different areas of law and offers a snapshot of the working life of a barrister.


Lamb Chambers offers mini-pupillages to candidates who have completed at least one year of an undergraduate degree course, which can be in any subject.  We particularly want to encourage applications from candidates who have not previously undertaken any mini-pupillages.


There will be no interview and offers of a place will be made on the strength of your application.

The process of selection for mini-pupillage is entirely separate from that of pupillage and acceptance/rejection of an application for mini-pupillage is not an indication of the likely outcome of any application you might subsequently make for a pupillage.

Equality and Diversity

Lamb Chambers is wholly committed to the principles of equality and diversity. We will therefore select candidates irrespective of age, background, disability, gender reassignment, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy and maternity status, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.
