The 2020 Bursary application process has now closed and bursaries awarded –
The 2021 Bursary will open later this Summer (2021).
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.
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 by Friday 15th January 2021
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 applicants will be invited to compete in an advocacy exercise to be held in the New Year, judged by the Chair of the Social Mobility Committee.
For further details, please contact the CBA Administrator.
