UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE WE WILL BE SUSPENDING ALL
MINI - PUPILLAGES AS A RESULT OF COVID-19
Given the uncertainties arising from the COVID-19 situation, we have made the difficult decision to suspend all mini-pupillages with immediate effect. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, however this step is for the safety of the staff, members and any visitors to Trinity's premises.
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.
