AWB's Committee Member, Brigitta Balogh is this year's Inderpal Rahal Memorial Trust Award Winner.
Following the tragic death of young barrister Inderpal Rahal a charitable trust has been established in her memory by Garden Court Chambers, to enable women experiencing financial hardship to further their legal education. The trust applies to women who are from an immigrant or refugee background and who intend to practice or teach law in the UK.
Each summer The Trust makes one, or occasionally two, awards of £2,000 towards undertaking or pursuing Bar or solicitors' exams, pupillage, solicitors' training, or other legal placement or research in the UK or abroad.
Ms Balogh is honoured and delighted to be receiving the award which will help to cover part of the Bar course tuition fees.
Ms Balogh who is a Hungary-born Roma aiming to qualify as the first barrister from her community feels particularly empowered by the award and would like to thank all members of Garden Court Chambers for contributing to the trust fund.
