Mini Pupillage

Mini-pupillages at Hogarth Chambers last 2 days.

Our mini-pupillage programme has been highly disrupted by the pandemic and we have therefore amended the time-table for 2021/2022. Further amendments may be necessary, depending upon the timing and extent of any continuing lockdown.

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.

There is a high demand for our mini-pupillages and as a result, we require prospective mini-pupils to have commenced or completed the GDL or to have entered the final year of a law degree.  We offer mini-pupillages only to candidates who appear to have realistic prospects of being called to interview for pupillage in due course.

For 2020/2021 period there are two opportunities to apply:-

The first application deadline is 5.00 pm on Friday, 23 April 2021 for mini-pupillages during the period October 2021 to March 2022;  and

The second application deadline is 5.00 pm on Friday, 22 October 2021 for mini-pupillages during the period March 2022 to July 2022.

We do not generally offer mini-pupillages during the court vacation periods and places are limited to no more than 10 per annum.

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
