Read an article in today's Times that says that 10,000 solicitors have lost their jobs because of the current recession. On top of this, many law firms are deferring their trainees for a year.
What I would be interested to know is: how has the recession affected practising members of the Bar and is it somehow affecting pupillage chances too for wannabe barristers?
I would be grateful for anyone's thoughts but also if anyone could direct me to some articles in the press that have discussed this question, that would be great too.
