Open Days And Mini-pupillage

Open Days

Chambers will be hosting an Open Day in the summer term of the 2023/24 academic year. Attendees will meet members of Chambers in order to gain a better understanding of the Commercial Bar and of life in Chambers.

We anticipate that the programme for the Open Day will include some or all of the following:

  • Seminars covering a range of topics concerning the Commercial Bar and the life of a commercial barrister
  • Sessions covering how to become a commercial barrister (including pupillage applications);
  • Opportunities for attendees to meet with members of Chambers and ask any questions they have about the Commercial Bar and Chambers

Those from under-represented backgrounds who are considering pupillage are particularly encouraged to apply in due course.

Further details of dates and how to apply will be posted on this page in due course. Chambers will reimburse reasonable expenses in line with its expenses policy.

  • Commercial Mini-pupillage

    One Essex Court does not offer commercial mini-pupillages. Instead, we run Open Days, which allow a wide-range of people to experience Chambers and our work, and we also participate in access schemes such as Bridging the Bar and a number of mentoring programmes.

  • IP Mini-pupillage

    Our IP Mini-Pupillage programme is currently on hold and we are not accepting any applications at this time. Please refer back to this web page for any updates.
