Mini Pupillage

We offer 2-day Mini-pupillages at Hogarth Chambers.

A mini-pupillage is an opportunity for you to experience life at Hogarth and at the IP/Chancery Bar. You will have the opportunity to read and discuss current IP and Chancery/Commercial cases with members of Chambers, accompany us to court and sit in on conferences with clients. We do our best to ensure that mini-pupils see a variety of work with a number of members of chambers.

Mini-pupillages are not formally assessed but the majority of candidates invited for pupillage interviews will have done a mini-pupillage with us. If you are interested in doing pupillage at Hogarth Chambers, if possible, we recommend that you apply for a mini-pupillage with us.

We offer mini-pupillages to those candidates who appear to have realistic prospects of being called to interview for pupillage in due course and therefore require prospective mini-pupils to have commenced or completed the GDL or to have entered the final year of a law degree.

We offer two intakes per year:

For those wishing to come on a mini-pupillage between 11th January and 5th April 2023, applications should be made between 1st September and 30th November 2022.

For between 18th April and 30th June 2023, applications should be made between 1st January and 28th February 2023

We do not generally offer mini-pupillages during the court vacation periods and places are limited.

Please address your application (by CV and covering letter) and any enquiries to The Chambers Director at Hogarth Chambers, 5 New Square, Lincoln’s Inn, London, WC2A 3RJ or
