Atkin Chambers to support 10,000 Black Interns’ programme for the Bar

15th Oct 2021

Atkin Chambers is delighted to be participating in the 10,000 Black Interns Project (#10000BlackInterns) which will be offering a number of paid internships at the Bar for 2022.

The initiative has seen an enthusiastic reception from the Bar with over 70 sets agreeing to participate in agreeing to participate in the programme which is designed to help support increasing diversity and inclusion across a range of industries including the legal profession and the Bar.

A minimum of 18 paid internships at the Bar will be available for 2022 with each successful candidate being allocated to a group of barristers chambers who will provide a six-week paid internship across the group with the aim of providing a broad and varied experience of work at the Bar.

Applications must be in before midnight on Sunday 7 November 2021 and the Bar programme’s steering committee, along with Bridging the Bar and the Bar Council, will select the final list of successful candidates in December.

The 10,000 Black Interns programme aims, over a five-year period beginning in Summer 2022, to offer paid work experience across a wide range of sectors, providing training and development opportunities and creating a sustainable cycle of mentorship and sponsorship for the Black community.
