Mini-Pupillage Policy

Farringdon Chambers welcomes application for mini-pupillage. We are committed to improving access to the Bar from all under-represented groups. We will consider all applications for mini-pupillage on a case by case basis.

Chambers offers unfunded placements which will run from between 2 – 5 days, depending on the availability of both Counsel and applicant.

All applications must be submitted in writing and will be assessed according to the following criteria:

  • The applicant will be required to demonstrate an awareness and understanding of Chambers work;
  • The academic ability of the applicant;
  • The applicant’s drafting skills, which will be best demonstrated by their covering letter and any accompanying CV;
  • The applicant’s public speaking and/or advocacy experience and any additional skills which have particular relevance to work at the Criminal Bar.

Applications will be assessed against our overarching aims of promoting access to the bar and equal opportunity. We particularly encourage applications from black and minority ethnic candidates, and from those with non-traditional backgrounds, including those who are underrepresented at the Bar. We actively seek to provide an opportunity for those who have had little exposure to the Criminal Bar. We ask that applicants to whom this may apply, outline any relevant information in their covering letter.

Places on this scheme will only be offered to those aged 18 years and above.

In order to apply please send CV and cover letter to, stating the exact dates mini-pupillage is sought.

How does it work?

  • Our usual approach is to review written applications from prospective tenants and then call in candidates for a single interview before a panel.
  • We may also take up references.
  • If you are successful in your application for tenancy, you will be contacted within 48 hours of your interview.
