Trinity Chambers will be opening applications for mini-pupillage from 15th November 2021.
Currently we are able to offer virtual mini-pupillages only due to the ongoing pandemic. Virtual mini-pupillages will take the form of a 2-hour Zoom call with a member of Chambers. You will be provided with a written or advocacy exercise the day before your mini. At the beginning of the call you will either perform the advocacy exercise for, or provide your written exercise to, the member you are speaking with, who will be able to provide feedback. You will then have the opportunity to ask any questions about the Bar, practice areas, life in Chambers, pupillage etc. Please note that the mini-pupillage is not assessed; the written/advocacy exercise is simply intended to give you an opportunity for feedback from a practitioner. Your current stage of education will always be taken into account as will your familiarity with the exercise area provided.
We hope to be able to start in-person mini-pupillages in March 2022, COVID permitting. If you are offered an in-person mini-pupillage it is a condition of acceptance that you agree to abide by Chambers’ health and safety policy.
