Cornwall Street Barristers, which has centres in Birmingham, Oxford and Maidstone, has increased its pupillage award for recruitment during 2022/2023 to £32,000 from £17,000.

Not only that, the significant increase will benefit a return to taking on three pupils in the upcoming intake of pupils including one pupil in the Midlands and two in the South East.

Chief Executive James Farmer said: “I can’t tell you how pleased we are to be able to raise our award for pupils in order to support the recruitment of the very best and brightest aspiring Barristers. We see this as an investment in both our own set and in the Bar more generally and are pleased to be able to recognise this in this way.”

Candidates are encouraged to apply via Chambers’ website and to contact James Farmer with any questions about a career as a Cornwall Street Barrister.
