“The comparison between barristers and electricians should not be allowed to detract from the fundamental — and frankly undeniable — point. Which is that, by any reasonable objective metric, criminal barristers are grossly underpaid. If we want the bar to be ‘staffed’ by high quality advocates — and I suggest we do, for reasons which should be trite — then we simply have to pay them properly.” [Legal Cheek comments]
