Applications open for Bridging the Bar Paid Internship in Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has announced that it will be running a paid internship programme this Autumn in collaboration with Bridging the Bar, a charitable organisation committed to increasing the equality of access to opportunities at the Bar across all underrepresented groups, for a second year.

On 01 August 2022, Bridging the Bar is launching the 'Bridging the Bar Academy' which offers 100 candidates the opportunity to access a programme of advocacy, pupillage-focused and personal development workshops, mentoring and internships. The Supreme Court internship is just one of several paid internships offered.

Lord Reed, President of the Supreme Court, said:

"I am delighted to announce that the Supreme Court will once again be working with Bridging the Bar to offer paid internships at the Court this autumn, following a successful pilot in 2021. The internships were a particular highlight of last year and form an important strand of our Judicial Diversity and Inclusion Strategy. The Supreme Court's partnership with Bridging the Bar is one of the ways in which we are driving forward our ambition to help build a legal profession in which diversity is valued and respected."
