Mini-pupillages

Our in-house scheme

We are happy to consider applications from those interested in a career at the Bar to spend a short time in Chambers.  Mini-pupillages at Three Stone are an opportunity for candidates to obtain experience of the work we do and of the atmosphere in Chambers. Successful candidates can expect to spend 1, 2 or 3 days (arranged at a mutually convenient time) with us, usually shadowing junior members, reading and discussing papers, attending court and conferences. Mini-pupillages at Three Stone are unfunded.

In order to benefit fully from the experience, we would recommend that prospective candidates apply only once they have completed at least 1 year of an undergraduate law degree or a term of the GDL.

We consider applications for mini-pupillage three times a year, as follows:

  1. For mini-pupillages in January-April, applications should be received by 4pm on 30 October the preceding year, and candidates should expect a response by mid-November;
  2. For mini-pupillages in May-August, applications should be received by 4pm on 31 January, and candidates should expect a response by mid-February;
  3. For mini-pupillages in September-December, applications should be received by 4pm on 30 June, and candidates should expect a response by mid-July.

COVID NOTICE: we are not currently considering any new applications for mini-pupillage. We will be in touch with candidates who have already applied in due course.

Applications should be made by a short covering letter and CV, preferably emailed to  mini-pupillage@threestone.law or, alternatively, addressed to:

Daria Gleyze/James Woolrich
Mini-Pupillage Secretary
Three Stone
3 Stone Buildings
Lincoln’s Inn

and marked “Mini-Pupillage”. Please state the period during which you would like to attend.
