As a Chambers, we are committed to offering mini-pupillages which we believe give a wide range of aspiring barristers a better understanding of life at the commercial bar than might otherwise be available. 

Why we offer mini-pupillages

We feel that mini-pupillages are the best way of allowing prospective pupils to learn more about Quadrant Chambers and life at the Commercial Bar.  Mini pupils will experience the life of a busy practitioner and spend time reading papers, carrying out legal research and discussing cases with barristers.  Additionally, time may be spent attending court and arbitrations and sitting in on client conferences.  Mini-pupillages are not compulsory for those wishing to apply to Quadrant for pupillage, but are strongly encouraged. 

What we expect from mini-pupils

We seek applications from those who are realistically interested in pursuing a career at the Commercial Bar, whether lawyers or non-lawyers.  Mini-pupillage applicants should be at least in the second year of their degree with an expected class of an upper second or above.
