Mini-pupillages are short periods of work experience spent shadowing a barrister, usually spanning three to five days. We encourage all law students to undertake mini-pupillages at some point in their academic career, being the key gateway to acquiring a pupillage as well as a way to gain a practical insight into the operation of law in court.

BPP Advocate of the Year Competition

The BPTC at BPP are running an Advocate of the Year competition. They will be offering a very ‘real world’ experience as a junior barrister doing short trials. There will be a day of civil and a day of crime with actors and ex-convicts to play the clients, and over the weekend of the competition those taking part will play different roles in the trial, and develop an aggregate score. The top prize is £5000 off the BPTC if the student chooses to study the BPTC at BPP. References and other prizes are also available. The event will be on the weekend of the 11th and 12th November.
