A mini-pupillage is the best way for you to get a feel for life at 2TG.

If you are thinking of applying to us for pupillage, we strongly encourage you to apply for a mini-pupillage. However, we do not require applicants for pupillage to do a mini-pupillage with us. Mini-pupillages at 2TG are not assessed.

We offer a limited number of mini-pupillages each year. Mini-pupillages are one day long. You will learn about the work we do and have the opportunity to meet members of chambers.

The best time to do a mini-pupillage is in the year or so prior to applying for pupillage. Please note that applicants will only be considered after their first year of a law degree or during CPE/GDL.

Applications for mini-pupillages are considered by reference to the 2TG pupillage selection criteria. Your mini-pupillage application is your opportunity to demonstrate how you meet the criteria.

Mini-pupillages will be offered between November 2024 and January 2025.

  • The deadline for applications and supporting references is 20 September 2024.
  • We fund expenses (standard class travel, accommodation etc.) of up to £250 for each mini-pupillage. We ask that you provide receipts to our Pupillage Administrator either during or after your mini-pupillage and we will arrange reimbursement.


Demand for mini-pupillages substantially exceeds the number of spaces available. If you are not offered a mini-pupillage please do not regard this as a discouragement to apply for a full 12 month pupillage when the time comes.

We are committed to increasing inclusion and diversity at the Bar and at 2TG. We particularly encourage and welcome applications from women, people of minority ethnic origin and people with disabilities, as well as candidates from other groups which have been historically underrepresented at the Bar.

2TG is partner in the Inner Temple Pegasus Access Scheme, which supports wider access to working at the Bar through funded mini-pupillages at supporting chambers.
