5RB usually runs three mini-pupillage programmes each year. On these programmes we accept up to 6 mini-pupils for 2 days. During the 2 days you will have the opportunity to attend court hearings involving members of 5RB, to learn about our work, and to meet various members of Chambers.

In person programmes have been postponed until further notice. A remote programme will take place in the week commencing 31 January 2022. Please do apply by 10 am on Monday 17 January, if you are interested in attending our next available programme.

Applications for mini-pupillage at 5RB must be made using Chambers’ mini pupillage application form. A Word version is available here (right click and “save link as”):
