Middle Temple Young Barristers' Association


MTYBA is committed to putting in place a comprehensive programme of events and opportunities for its members who are seeking pupillage.

MTYBA's Pupillage Application Programme is a series of events specifically tailored to meet the challenges faced by applicants throughout the application process, particularly during the key months of Gateway applications:

  •  Pupillage Application Evening

An opportunity to receive advice and discuss informally the written application stage with experienced practitioners, including a chance to receive feedback on draft applications.

  •  Pupillage Interview Workshop

A chance to undertake a mock pupillage interview in front of interview panellists from chambers and receive detailed feedback on performance.

The Middle Temple Students' Association have put together a  page of some example common pupillage interview questions, which can be read here.

  •  Interview Advocacy Workshop

A chance to undertake mock advocacy exercises akin to those at pupillage interviews in front of chambers interview panellists and receive detailed feedback on performance.

MTYBA is also committed to providing the following additional opportunities for pre-pupils:

  • International Internship Award

  • Advocacy Competition
