Mini Pupillage

A mini pupillage at Farrar’s Building offers you an opportunity to gain an impression of the work that we do and the atmosphere in chambers. It is also an opportunity for us to meet you.

We offer mini pupillages of 3 days, which are not formally assessed; they take place throughout the year on mutually convenient dates. During your time with us you will shadow barristers at court and in chambers. We try to ensure that at least some of your time is spent with the more junior members of chambers in order that you can gain a realistic view of life as a junior tenant. This also provides you with an opportunity to ask any questions you have about a career at the Bar. In past years the experience gained from a mini pupillage with us has typically enhanced a candidate’s application for pupillage at Farrar’s Building.

Applicants for mini pupillage should have begun or completed a course of higher education. We are unable to offer work experience for school children.


“I thoroughly enjoyed my mini-pupillage with Farrar’s. Throughout the week, there was a friendly and inclusive atmosphere. Everyone was accommodating. The experience has provided me with an added sense of motivation to pursue this career in the future.”
