Mini Pupillage

Applications Now Closed  – 28th March 2024

Applications are now closed for mini pupillage in 2024. The application process will re-open in October 2024 for mini pupillage in 2025.

In support of the Western Circuit’s ‘BarNone’, we will be offering at least 50% of mini pupillages to BAME and state school applicants with the aim of improving diversity by encouraging applications from under-represented groups.

We also have a financially supported mini pupillage scheme to help up to 4 candidates with expenses. The aim of the scheme is to increase diversity at the bar by supporting those who may struggle with the cost of attending a mini pupillage. To see if you are eligible, please check our policy here. In addition, Lincolns Inn offers funding for mini pupils for travel and accommodation. You can read more about their scheme and how to apply here.
