Mini Pupillage/Work Experience

How to Apply

This year Lamb Chambers is offering 12 4-day mini-pupillages.

Our mini-pupillage programme will commence on 1 June 2022 and end on 30 September 2022, excluding the month of August.

To apply, candidates must send a copy of their CV and covering letter to Elizabeth Dwomoh.

The application window will close at 4:00pm on 15 April 2022.  Candidates will be notified by email on 2 May 2022 if their application has been successful.


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.
