Queen's Counsel statistics

Barristers at the self-employed and employed Bar can apply to be appointed as Queen's Counsel (QC). They are considered as experts in their field, generally with a minimum of 15 years' practice. When a barrister is appointed as a QC this is known informally as "taking silk" because of their entitlement to wear black silk gowns in court instead of standard court dress.
