Mini-pupillage

Content

Hailsham Chambers offers mini-pupillages throughout the course of the year. The purpose of mini-pupillage at Hailsham is to help successful applicants see what life is like as a junior tenant, and to offer an insight into Chambers and its areas of practice.

Applicants for mini-pupillage must submit an application comprising a CV and covering letter in accordance with Chambers’ mini-pupillage application timetable (see below).

Applications will be assessed against the following criteria, which we encourage you to consider when writing your cover letter:

  • Academic ability;
  • Maturity and responsibility (which may be evidenced by extra-curricular activities);
  • Communication skills;
  • Interest in the Bar;
  • Interest in Hailsham’s areas of practice;
  • Experience of oral advocacy through mooting, debating or other public speaking; and
  • Care and attention in preparation of your application.

Applications should be addressed to David Story and Jack Steer, and should be submitted either:

  • By email to reception@hailshamchambers.com with “Mini-Pupillage” in the subject line; or
  • By post to Hailsham Chambers, 4 Paper Buildings, London EC4Y 7EX.

The timetable for applications is as follows:

  • An applicant wishing to undertake mini-pupillage during the period February – June should submit an application by 30th November of the preceding year.
  • An applicant wishing to undertake mini-pupillage during the period September – December should submit an application by 31 July of that year.

Although we do not require applicants for pupillage to have undertaken a mini-pupillage with us nor assess them – we do encourage potential applicants for pupillage to consider applying for mini-pupillage.
