Mini Pupillage

What we offer

Temple Garden Chambers offers a set number of mini-pupillages each year. These are designed to allow prospective applicants for pupillage to see the work that we do, and gain an insight into life as a barrister at Temple Garden Chambers. It is also an opportunity for us to meet you.

Mini-pupils are invited into Chambers for three days, and will spend the majority of that time shadowing one of our barristers throughout their working day.

Work experience

Unfortunately, Chambers does not generally offer work experience placements for school-age students due to lack of capacity to accommodate the same.

How to apply

Our mini-pupillages take place during the Easter and summer university holidays, with the exception of the month of August. Applications must be made by 13 December of the year preceding that during which you wish to undertake a mini-pupillage.

As a limited number of places are available, priority will be given to those applicants who are entering their second or final year of a law degree or undertaking the CPE.


Chambers is committed to promoting equality and diversity within the legal profession, and will make all reasonable adjustments to accommodate candidates. The main building, which includes the reception, the clerks’ room and all the conference rooms, is accessible by wheel-chair users, and arrangements can be put in place for use of fully accessible toilets within Temple.

If you have any particular concerns or requirements about access of any sort, please contact please contact Gaye Spencer-King.
