Applications are now closed for mini pupillage in the period from September 2020 to July 2021.

If you have submitted your application to us, they are currently being reviewed and we will be in touch with you shortly.


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. Work experience normally lasts for three days, is unfunded, and is not formally assessed.

Those undertaking work experience 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.


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

Applications should be made by email to, with covering letter and curriculum vitae.

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;
  • whether London or Midlands based work experience is preferred;
  • the dates when you are available to complete your mini pupillage.

Candidates must meet the minimum age and qualifications requirements, and must send coherent covering letters and CVs during the application window. Subject to meeting those conditions, places are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
