We are currently looking for more legal academics and barristers who may be keen to be involved in this important work. External Examining work consists of two to three visits to a provider over a year, extensive sampling of student work and writing interim and final reports. A fee is payable on receipt of each report which totals £1,600 per year for a provider with one site and £2,400 per year for a provider with two sites. A monitoring visit generally takes one to two days including reading documentation, visiting and commenting on a draft report. No fee is payable to practitioners but all expenses are met. Lay people can claim a fee of £150 per meeting or £300 per day.

We would be delighted to hear from anyone interested in becoming involved with this work. Please send your CV to Janet Pugh (JPugh@BarStandardsBoard.org.uk), together with a covering letter stating why you are interested in the role and indicating your area of legal specialisation and/or experience of higher education.
