Mini Pupillage/Work Experience

Applications for 2023 mini-pupilages are now closed.

Summer 2024 applications will open in June 2024.


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 2 years of a 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.
