Mini Pupillage


The 36 Group organises two mini–pupillage courses each year, lasting a four week period. The next period was due to be in Spring 2020 but will now be postponed. On each occasion we take 3 mini–pupils per week.

On each day of the course, mini–pupils are offered the opportunity to attend court, or to work on legal research in Chambers and also to attend conferences. It is expected that mini–pupils will attend for the whole week.

The application process for the next round of mini-pupillages will open in in Autumn 2020, and the application forms will be available on this page. 

We are not able to offer any placements outside of the set dates, and only applications made using the online form on our website will be considered. All applications will be sent to the Pupillage Secretary and another Committee member for review. They will consider the candidates, notify them and hold a list of reserves.

Our mini-pupillage weeks are intended purely for work experience of a barrister’s practice and working life, and are only available to those over 18 years of age. 

For the avoidance of doubt for those who are considering applying to us for a full pupillage, we do not require potential pupils to have completed a mini-pupillage with the 36 Group.
