The 2019 Bursary application process is now closed.
Our 2020 Bursary will open March 2020.
Applications are invited for awards from the Criminal Bar Association Bursary Fund.
Major Bursaries of up to £5,000 will be awarded to successful applicants. Other bursaries will include subscriptions to the leading practitioners’ textbooks.
The award competition is open to members of the CBA under 7 years’ call. The fund is designed to assist practising barristers from financially disadvantaged backgrounds.
Please complete the application form and return it, together with a reference from the applicant’s Head of Chambers, to the CBA Administrator, Aaron Dolan [email protected]by Monday 4th November 2019.
The application form requires details of background and means together with a reference from the Applicant’s Head of Chambers (or pupil supervisor if a reference from the Head of Chambers is unavailable).
The assessment will be primarily means-tested; performance in exams will therefore not be determinative but will assist the panel in assessing the applicant’s suitability.
A number of the most deserving applicants will be invited to compete in an advocacy exercise to be held in November, judged by the Chair of the Social Mobility Committee.
For further details, please contact the CBA Administrator, [email protected].
