Chambers is delighted to offer mini pupillages via three initiatives, all of which are aimed at improving access at the Bar:

  1. Inner Temple’s ‘Pegasus Access and Support Scheme’ (“PASS”). This scheme is aimed at high-achieving students from under-represented backgrounds. If you would like to sign-up, please look on Inner Temple’s website – available here:
  2. Middle Temple’s ‘Access to the Bar Award’, which provides a mini-pupillage and marshalling experience to excellent candidates from under-represented backgrounds. If you are interested, the relevant section of Middle Temple’s website is here:
  3. We continue to support the Bar Council’s Bar Placement Scheme, which provides an opportunity to sixth formers to spend time in chambers:

Inside Five

In addition, Chambers hosts regular online Open Evenings called ‘Inside Five’. At these events, you will have the chance to hear from the most senior individuals in Chambers right through to our newest tenants. It will give you a better understanding of what it means to be a barrister, how to make a strong pupillage application and, of course, a unique insight into 5 Essex Chambers.
