Mini Pupillage


We have now reached capacity for mini-pupillage from October 2016 to September 2017.

Mini-pupillages are allocated on a first-come, first served basis and applications are invited from 1 May each year. All applications and CVs should be sent to: minipupils@7br.co.uk. Please note: applications before 1 May 2017 will not be considered. Please follow the guidance below when making your application.

What Is involved?


If you have left school and are interested in a career as a barrister, we may be able to offer you work experience, which is a unique opportunity for you to gain an insight into the day-to-day work of a barrister. Your work experience will last for one week, will be unfunded and is not formally assessed.

Work experience students are normally expected to be available between 9am and 6pm each day. Efforts will be made to minimise the extent to which work experience students will be asked to travel to court. Normally, a London-based work experience student will be allocated to work in the Greater London area. However this cannot be guaranteed as our chambers work covers a wide geographical area. It may be possible to arrange work experience in the Midlands, depending on your location and the workload of members.

Qualifications


All candidates must be aged 18 or over, and should (a) have completed the equivalent of three A-Levels to Grade B standard, or (b) be enrolled on a degree course or (c) have graduated (in any subject).

All work experience students will be expected to sign a confidentiality agreement.

How To Apply


Work experience is allocated on a first come, first served basis, subject to availability and to meeting the minimum age and qualifications requirements.

Applications should be made by email, with covering letter and curriculum vitae to: minipupils@7br.co.uk.

Applications made by any other method will not be considered.

The covering letter should set out:

  • the reasons for applying to 7BR, indicating any areas of chambers’ practice which are of particular interest.
  • should state whether London or Midlands based work experience is preferred.
  • should include your availability dates.
