  • I undertook an assessed mini pupillage at a civil chambers in 2010. I did not have to do any form of written work but had a short informal chat with my supervisor as to how I came accross and my general aptitude for a career at the bar.

  • It seems to vary from set to set, I have had a couple of assessed mini-pupillages where the assessment was simply observing me and discussing cases to get a feel of how I thought, and another required me to research a few points of law and give a presentation. The chambers' website may give you an indication as to what the assessed aspect is.

  • I did an assessed mini pupillage at a civil set. I was expected to complete 2 pieces of work:

    1) a research note on relevant cases arising out of a recent CA judgment and how it could potentially affect a client

    2) an opinion based on actual case papers for a case the set had apparently dealt with (though some of the potentially identifying information had been redacted)

    In addition to these, I did the normal mini-pupillage thing of spending a day in court shadowing a barrister.
