• “Diligent, skilled and committed advocates are essential to the smooth running of the courts, and the effective administration of justice.

    It is also vital to recruit talented and able young lawyers from every social background so that the profession, and ultimately the judiciary, reflects the diversity of the society it serves.

    I was a great admirer of Michael Kalisher, and I warmly support the continuing work of the Trust in providing financial help to young members of the criminal Bar.”

    The Rt. Hon Lord Judge, former Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales.
