Website charges aspiring barristers for job applications
A website charging prospective barristers to apply for entry-level jobs has come to the attention of Legal Week. The site, 3rdsix.co.uk, charges pupils in return for access to vacancies for so-called 'third six' pupillages, which are undertaken by candidates unable to find a tenancy after the compulsory 12-month pupillage. The site, which claims to have 366 pupillage seekers and 35 barristers' chambers registered, charges pupils £14.99 per year in membership, while chambers pay £149.99 per posted vacancy.
