Called to the Bar statistics

"Call" is the date at which barristers are formally recognised to have passed the vocational stage of training and have been called to the Bar by their Inn of Court. Barristers are often referred to by the year of their "year of Call" which is calculated on the same date.

 * Please note that our statistics on the age of barristers practising at the Bar are not directly comparable between 2015 and earlier years. This is due to us improving the way in which we obtained this information from barristers from 2015.

 

 

Securing "tenancy" means being accepted as a permanent member of chambers, traditionally upon completion of pupillage. Barristers normally secure tenancy in the set where they completed their pupillage, although it is also possible to apply elsewhere.
