Mini Pupillage


Mini-pupillages at Hogarth Chambers last 2 days.

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.
