UK Supreme Court to take on paid interns from underrepresented groups

 UK Supreme Court Upholds Jurisdiction to Set Global FRAND Licence Terms •  Intellectual Property Expert Group

The supreme court has announced its first paid internships for aspiring lawyers from underrepresented communities as it seeks to increase diversity in the judiciary.

The initiative by the UK’s highest court, in collaboration with the charity Bridging the Bar, comes as the supreme court, judiciary and legal profession more widely face scrutiny over accessibility.

All 12 supreme court justices are white and only two are women. Across the judiciary in England and Wales, the proportion of black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) court judges was 8% as of 1 April, with 4% in senior posts (high court and above). For women, the respective figures were 32% and 26%. According to the 2011 census, 14% of the population were BAME and 51% were female.

The new programme will offer a five-day placement to eight Bridging the Bar candidates who have either completed or accepted an offer to take the bar professional training course.


Vicky Fox, the chief executive of the UK supreme court, said: “The court recognises that it has a leadership role to play to support increasing diversity of the judiciary and it is our intention that this programme will support the progression of underrepresented groups into the legal profession and ultimately into judicial roles.

“We are looking forward to learning from the interns and hope that the programme will provide an intellectually stimulating experience for participants and support them to pursue a career in the law.”

Each participant will be assigned to a judicial assistant and over the course of the week, the interns will observe cases, discuss legal arguments with justices and gain insights and guidance.

Bridging the Bar, which promotes equal opportunity and diversity in the legal profession, will run two days of preparatory coaching before the placement to ensure candidates are ready for their time at the court.


Eleanor Tack, from the charity, said: “I am very excited about this programme. It’s going to be a really challenging week for the candidates who will be asked to discuss legal arguments with the judicial assistants and justices and give a presentation at the end. For this reason, only candidates of the highest quality will be selected, and we expect the competition to be extremely high.”

Thursday’s announcement by the supreme court came as it published its judicial diversity and inclusion strategy, which aims to support the progress of underrepresented groups into judicial roles and achieve an inclusive and respectful working environment for justices.

Applications Invited for Resilience Fellowship 2021

 Applications Invited for Resilience Fellowship 2021

Organization: Global Initiative

Apply By: 04 Jan 2021

 About the Organization:

The Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime is an independent civil society organization. It comprises a network of over 500 experts including prominent law enforcement, governance and development practitioners dedicated to seeking new and innovative strategies and responses to organized crime.

Resilience Fellowship 2021

The Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime (GI-TOC) is pleased to announce the second edition of the Resilience Fellowship, ‘Extortion as an illicit economy of organized crime’, to build a platform for cross-sectoral, global and interdisciplinary collaboration between civil-society actors, human-rights activists, journalists, artists, scholars, policymakers, grassroots community leaders and others working to counter the effects of organized crime.

The Resilience Fellowship is a new initiative of the Resilience Fund that provides support and opportunities to a cohort of individuals from around the world, including civil-society actors, human-rights activists, journalists, artists, scholars, policymakers, community leaders and others working to counter the effects of organized crime.

Theme for 2021

For 2021, the theme of the Resilience Fellowship will be extortion and organized crime. Within this framework, Fellows will be asked to combine their various perspectives in the development of collaborative outputs, as well as to represent the Fund as Resilience Fund Ambassadors who will raise awareness of the theme, issues and the importance of civil society in countering organized crime.

The Resilience Fellowship is based on a three-pronged approach:

    Sponsorship: Providing financial support, so that Resilience Fellows will have the resources and time to conduct their work on a collaborative project during the fellowship year. Grants of USD$15 000 per fellow will be awarded for one year.
    Networking: Offering mentorship opportunities with experts from the GI-TOC; the aim is also to bring Resilience Fellows together on a residency retreat to begin the collaborative project to be undertaken during their fellowship year.
    Dissemination: Creating a platform for Resilience Fellows to share their work and ideas publicly – using platforms such as festivals, conferences, civil-society forums, and national and international publications.

Eligibility Criteria:

For the year 2021, a total of 10 Fellows will be selected -

    These can represent the fields of journalism and media; activism; advocacy and community mobilization; the creative arts (including artists, writers, filmmakers and others); community leaders (religious, cultural or youth leaders); academia (researchers and scholars), and the public sector (policymakers). Individuals from other disciplines will be considered if their work is relevant to the Resilience Fellowship’s objectives and annual theme.
    The Fellowship welcomes applications from individuals of any gender, ethnicity, age, religion, or any other defining factor, who work in communities affected by organized crime. The overall make-up of the 10 Fellows will be diverse and will reflect an equitable geographic and gender balance.

Selection Criteria:

    Participants should be from countries disproportionately affected by organized crime and/or from least developed countries (LDCs).
    Participants should ideally work closely within communities severely affected by extortion related to organized crime, or have strong ties within them, and should have ongoing or established projects or engagement. The cross-border nature of issues relating to organized crime allows applicants working within a wider, non-geographic community to be considered on a case to-case basis. There is no requirement that the Fellow live in the community concerned.
    Participants should be able to demonstrate how the funding and support will be used.
    Participants who have direct experience in their communities’ issues, related to the annual theme, are particularly encouraged to apply.
    Participants must be fluent in at least one of these three languages: Spanish, English and French.
    Participants’ prior work should demonstrate a commitment to the ethics and values of the Resilience Fund.
