A divorce law barrister has posted a series of tweets laying bare just how broke her criminal barrister husband is. Students considering a career at the publicly-funded Bar should take note…

As St Philips Chambers’ Leisha Bond reports, criminal barristers are actually having to sell stuff to survive.

That’s because legal aid cuts mean they can’t even afford pizza.

Thanks for that, Bertie.


Nor do criminal barristers even have enough money to get to court sometimes.

Unsurprisingly, it leaves them reliant on their partners for support.

Broke criminal barristers who are curious to find out which category of “fat cat lawyer” they fall into can do so here.
