Barristers On Strike

Recommended Posts

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-25597617

I see that the lawyers are on a half day strike today after the cuts in legal aid. Does anyone know how much they get paid etc, its very hard to see if they have a gripe or not.

"A Ministry of Justice spokeswoman said: "At around £2bn a year we have one of the most expensive legal aid systems in the world, and it would remain very generous even after reform.

"Latest figures show more than 1,200 barristers judged to be working full time on taxpayer-funded criminal work received £100,000 each in fee income last year, with six barristers receiving more than £500,000 each."

How many barristers are there?
