At Trinity Chambers we recognise that the best way of finding out about how a barristers’ chambers works and whether being a barrister is for you is by offering mini-pupillages. This is basically an opportunity for those considering a career at the Bar to meet some of the barristers at Trinity and see some of the work that they do.
Trinity Chambers offers mini-pupillages throughout the year to those considering a career at the Bar. These are predominately aimed at students on a university-based course in a legal discipline, although other applications will be considered. Mini-pupillages will usually only be offered to applicants demonstrating the highest standards of academic and extra-curricular achievements. Mini-pupillages cannot be offered to persons under the age of 18.
