3PB is now accepting applications for mini pupillage. All five of our centres offer mini-pupillages. Mini pupillages are a great way of finding out what life at the Bar in general and at 3PB in particular is like.
We have three separate application windows for mini pupillage and the closing dates for each are set out below. Our mini pupillages are not assessed, but we do operate a selective applications process because of the number of applications we receive every year. You can find details of the marking scheme in the Mini Pupillage Policy, which you can download from this page together with the application form. Please read the Policy carefully before applying.
Please note that we can only accept applications made on our application form and you must apply to a specific centre; we do not accept applications by c.v., nor will we accept application forms which refer to an attached c.v. We recommend that you email your completed application, marked "Mini pupillage application for [centre]", to firstname.lastname@example.org. However, you can also send a hard copy to 3PB London, marked for the attention of James Thornton.
Please also note that we do not have capacity for a mini pupil in Birmingham at this time.
