Lawcast 94: Nichola Higgins, Chairman of The Young Barristers Committee on the Mentoring scheme with young Zimbabwe lawyers

Today I am talking to Nichola Higgins, Chairman of the Young Barristers Committee about the new mentoring scheme for young lawyers from Zimbabwe.  We also take the opportunity to do a round up of issues affecting young barristers in the current climate, particularly those in public funded fields of family, crime and some civil litigation.

  1. Ms Higgins has articulated the position as to publicly-funded work at the junior bar very well. I was also going to say “what a scrumptious bit of crumpet, I’ll wager she has a delightful fragrance about her, you lucky old thing Charon!”. That, however, would be sexist and inapproriate.

    What is important is that she has really hit the nail on the head for us young barristers and represents our interests magnificently.
