Winner Announced

We are delighted to announce the winner for the inaugural ICLR Pupillage Award.

Congratulations to

Sophia Stapleton

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).
