This is our Mini Pupillage Programme. It is a 2-day event at which our selected mini pupils get to meet as many of our members as possible, to hear about their work in presentations and to take part in advocacy and other exercises.

Junior and senior members offer an insight into working life in their specialist areas. Senior clerks tell the mini pupils how chambers really works and each year we hear from a senior judge about the Bar as seen from the bench.
