Unity Street Chambers - Bristol: A leading set of Barristers serving the South West and beyond


Unity Street Chambers offers a limited number of 3-day mini-pupillages throughout the year to talented applicants who must be at least at undergraduate level.

Mini-pupils will have the opportunity to shadow members of Chambers in court and during conferences. There may also be an opportunity to read papers and undertake written work.

Unfortunately, due to the level of demand we are unable to extend the offer of placements to secondary school pupils.

30 September for mini-pupillages offered in January- March of the following year
31 December for mini-pupillages offered in April-June of the following year
31 March for mini-pupillages offered in July-September
