Pupillage numbers hold steady but it is not enough, say senior Bar figures

Five hundred and twenty-six students were given pupillages between 1 October, 2006 and 30 September, 2007, compared with 515 in the previous year. The news will be warmly received by students hoping to enter the profession, as it is the first time in recent years that the number has not dropped.
