Legal sector organisations

The Kalisher Trust is proud of its association with many prestigious organisations who freely and generously lend their support, guidance and encouragement to young people in pursuit of careers at the Criminal Bar.

The Judiciary

A number of Kalisher trustees and patrons are senior members of the Judiciary who give their support willingly to the Trust and every year enable a young person from one of the City of London Academies to become the Old Bailey Apprentice, a most coveted award.

The Bar

The Trust is grateful for the help and support given to it by a large number of prestigious sets of chambers, many of whose members are Kalisher trustees and patrons. A number of these chambers have generously provided mini internships to students.

Solicitor firms

The Kalisher Trust is also most grateful for the support of a number of well known law firms, including Kingsley Napley and Mischon de Reya.

The Trust is delighted to participate in the Times/Kingsley Napley advocacy competition 2017. The title for this year’s competition is “Do we need new laws to combat fake news?”

The Trust was very grateful to Mishcon de Reya for very kindly sponsoring the Kalisher production of The Disappearance of Miss Bebb held at Middle Temple Hall on 2 April 2017. The production starred Martin Shaw, Laura Main of Call the Midwife, comedian and actor Hugh Denis, theatre’s Ray Fearon, Baroness Hale of the Supreme Court and Sir Brian Leveson, President of the Queen’s Bench Division.

Legal internships

Paid internships for young, aspiring trainee barristers are arranged with organisations such as JUSTICE, the Criminal Cases Review Commission, The City of London Police Economic Crime Directorate and Amicus.
