The deadline for the Annual Pupillage Award made by the Incorporated Council of Law Reporting is 31st March. You can apply if:
You are taking up pupillage before November 2017 and paid a total for the year of no more than £18,000 (including guaranteed earnings).
The ICLR Award provides a potential top-up award of a further £12,000 to one pupil every year.
Take a look at the information on the ICLR website to find out how you apply.
ICLR’s research and development manager Daniel Hoadley says this of the award:
“As a charity, ICLR is always looking for new ways to support law students and those embarking on a career at the Bar – the ICLR Pupillage Award is a new way in which we aim to support students commencing pupillage in chambers.
The majority of ICLR’s staff are barristers, so we’re acutely aware of how challenging pupillage can be and how this has been exacerbated for some areas of the profession by recent cuts to legal aid.”
