  • It's fair to say there is already a two tier Bar (if not a three or four tier Bar in reality). Top commercial sets, with some barristers earning more than Magic Circle partners, can pay pupils £50,000+ and offer them great careers, while many criminal/family and even PI and smaller civil sets sets no longer give pupils tenancy because they simply do not have the work to share. Some are now in a gradual downward economic spiral with no strategic plan to restructure so they can navigate their way through this challenging landscape.
