5 Essex Court has offered unassessed mini-pupillages for many years, primarily to give potential applicants for pupillage an opportunity to see the sort of work we do and have a chance to meet members of chambers by shadowing them. Due to the pandemic, we have not been able to offer mini-pupillages as normal for some time (though have offered some virtually).
We have been re-thinking our mini-pupillage scheme and expect to make an announcement shortly - please do keep an eye on this webpage, on our Twitter @Pupillages, and on our Instagram @5essexcourt_pupillages. As such, we are not currently taking applications for mini-pupillage. We regret that we are not able to offer work experience or informal mini-pupillages.
