Twenty Essex supports criminal bar pupillage funding scheme

Twenty Essex is delighted to support the Criminal Pupillage Funding Scheme. The Bar has recognised the challenges of the current pandemic and its particular impact on the recruitment and training of pupil barristers. In conjunction with a number of other commercial sets of chambers, Twenty Essex is committed to support financially the provision of pupillages at the criminal bar.

Co-heads of Chambers, Duncan Matthews QC and Stephen Atherton QC said: “Twenty Essex had no hesitation in enthusiastically backing this initiative as an act of solidarity with and in support of the criminal Bar, given its importance in the defence of the rights of citizens and to ensure that the opportunity for young people, in particular, to be able to practise in their chosen profession was not arbitrarily compromised by the current pandemic.”

The Bar Council will be facilitating the scheme, which was announced in the inaugural speech from the Bar Council’s Chair-Elect, Derek Sweeting QC, last week.
