While undertaking a mini-pupillage at 1KBW is absolutely not a prerequisite for an application for pupillage, we do encourage potential applicants to experience life at the Bar through a mini-pupillage (either at 1KBW or elsewhere).

The Application Process
Mini-pupillages at 1KBW are always heavily subscribed and places are limited. We are only able to consider university graduates or undergraduates.

We consider applications three times a year – in April (application form deadline 26/03/24), September (application form deadline 30/08/24) and December (application form deadline 30/11/23) – made using the application form on our website. Please save and return the completed application form in word format to bookings@1kbw.co.uk FAO: Nichola Bentley when completed.

Mini-pupils are chosen on the strength of their paper applications using the following criteria:

      • Academic achievement
      • Extra-curricular activities and work experience
      • A proven interest in family law
      • The overall impact created

Applications are also weighted in favour of candidates who are closer to making an application for pupillage.

Equal Opportunities
1KBW is committed to equal opportunity in the selection of pupils and mini-pupils, and regularly reviews its policies and practices to ensure that this is achieved.

The selection processes are operated without discrimination. For more information please contact Nichola Bentley, Chambers’ Administrator. We have a firm commitment to Equality and Diversity.
