Our Mini-pupillage Scheme is designed to offer students a comprehensive understanding of the day-to-day work of barristers in Hong Kong. Through observation, mentorship, and practical involvement, students will gain exposure to real-life legal cases, courtroom proceedings, and the dynamics of a bustling legal practice.

The scheme aims to provide a valuable platform for students to explore the inner workings of barristers’ chambers, interact with experienced barristers, and immerse themselves in the practice of law. The scheme generally lasts for two or four weeks – subject to barristers’ schedules and students’ preferences.

An experience in our Mini-pupillage Scheme will be an advantage if student intends to apply for our Pupillage or Pupillage Scholarships in the future.
