Deans Court Chambers

Expert legal advice and advocacy, delivered by an outstanding team of Queen’s Counsel and barristers.


Deans Court Chambers offers 12-month pupillages which, whilst emphasising a candidate's chosen field of practice, include rotation between practice groups.

Chambers also provides a unique and innovative range of mini-pupillage opportunities for those interested in a career at the Bar


Application forms for our 2022 pupillage intake can be found here. Deadline is Monday 8th February 2021.


Deans Court Chambers traditionally offers a limited number of 2-day and 3-day placements to exceptional University students considering studying for the Bar. Our purpose is to allow candidates to consider whether they are suited to this unique and challenging career. Mini-pupillages at Deans Court Chambers are not assessed, nor is a mini-pupillage at Deans Court Chambers a necessary condition of a full pupillage application.

Mini-Pupillage Day

In response to the demand for mini-pupillage experience, we have introduced an annual one-day Mini-Pupillage event which takes place at our Manchester Chambers. Candidates undertake various oral and written exercises in a workshop environment with the opportunity for feedback from established practitioners and the chance to discuss careers at the Bar. These events are heavily over-subscribed. Places are strictly limited and will be awarded to applicants on merit in the same way as traditional mini-pupillage placements. Details of the next such event will appear here in due course.
