Spending a week undertaking a mini-pupillage at QEB is a very good way to answer three important questions:
• Do I want to be a barrister?
• Do I want to specialise in family law?
• Would I want a pupillage at QEB?
Mini-pupils spend much of their time at QEB (up to one week) accompanying members of chambers to court. The area of family law you are most likely to be exposed to as a mini-pupil is financial remedies (formerly called 'ancillary relief') work; however, members undertake a wide range of family work.
Applications for mini-pupillages (CV with covering letter) will only be accepted by post and not by email, and should be addressed to the Mini-Pupillage Secretary.
If you are currently an undergraduate or have finished your undergraduate studies please provide a breakdown on your CV of your marks for each subject/module taken at the date of your application.
Chambers does not accept applications for mini-pupillage from applicants who are under 18 years of age.
Chambers adopts a time-table for the allocation of placements. Applications for mini pupillages will be considered four times a year only. The time-table is set out in the table below:
|Period||Closing date for application|
|Oct - Dec 2013||31st August 2013|
|Jan - March 2014||30 Nov 2013|
|April - May 2014||31st January 2014|
|June - Sept 2014||30th April 2014|
Applications will not be considered prior to the closing date and any applications received after the relevant closing date will not be considered for that period.
