The certificates are valid for three years and we are still encouraging other organisations to apply. It is great to see so many organisations are willing to put in so much effort to support barristers and staff.”

All applications received between 1 October and 31 March will be considered in the April round and applications received between 1 April and 30 September will be considered in the October round.
