We are delighted to announce the winner for the inaugural ICLR Pupillage Award.
The purpose of the ICLR Pupillage Award is to provide direct financial assistance (a sum of £12,000) to a pupil during the course of their 12 month pupillage in chambers. To be eligible for the ICLR Pupillage Award, the candidate demonstrated that:
- They are taking up a confirmed offer of pupillage at a set of chambers; and
- The pupillage award they are to receive from chambers is not valued as being more than £14,000 for a twelve month pupillage (including basic award and guaranteed earnings)
Applications were subject to two criteria: financial need and merit.
The final task for our shortlist was to write a headnote for a Weekly Law Report based on an unreported transcript that we supplied.
The decision was be made by the judging panel; Margaret Bowron QC, Mr Justice Roth & Clive Scowen (Editor, the ICLR).
