Pupillage award rises to £40,000

Pupillage award rises to £40,000

We are delighted to announce that, following a review, the pupillage award at 6KBW College Hill for 2017 will increase to £40,000. Funding will consist of a grant of £20,000 in the first six, plus guaranteed minimum income of £20,000 in the second six.

The system of guaranteed minimum income means that pupils keep what they earn, but if their income falls below a certain level in any month, chambers will make up the shortfall. Using an average for the last three years, our pupils have earned around £8,000 in excess of the guaranteed minimum. In some cases they have earned substantially more.

We hope that this step will encourage applicants to 6KBW College Hill from the widest possible range of backgrounds. Applications for 2017 will open in Spring / Summer 2016.
