2020 Mini-pupillages

Thank you to everyone who applied for mini-pupillage in 2020.  We will shortly be contacting those who have been successful to arrange a week to come in.

​Due to the volume of applications we are unable to respond to everyone. If you have not heard from us then you have been unsuccessful this year.  Please feel free to apply again next year.

2021 Mini-pupillages

We will accept applications for mini-pupillage for 2021 during the month of January 2021. Any applications received before or after January and/or with an incorrect ‘subject’ will not be considered.

Chambers offers mini-pupillages to students who are currently studying at degree level or who have completed their undergraduate studies. Mini-pupillages are three days long (usually Monday to Wednesday).

If you would like to apply for a mini-pupillage during 2021 please send an email to bernadette.smith@1mcb.com with the subject, “Application for mini-pupillage,” write a covering email of no more than three paragraphs and attach a copy of your CV.  In your covering email please tell us:

1. how many mini-pupillages you have done before;

2. why you want to do a mini-pupillage at 1MCB Chambers, and

3. any dates you cannot attend.

Mini-pupillages will be allocated giving preference to those candidates that have not completed a mini-pupillage and then to those who have only completed one mini-pupillage and so on. If we have too many applications from applicants who have not yet completed a mini-pupillage, we will consider the reasons you want to come to 1MCB Chambers for a mini-pupillage.

If you are successful we will email you further instructions by the end of February 2021.

Please note that we ask mini-pupils to sign a confidentiality agreement.

Please also note that we do not require you to have completed a mini-pupillage with us before applying for pupillage.

Please see our Privacy Policy for how we use and retain any personal data sent in applications.​
