  • Pupillage is not training for employment

    1 March 1997

    In Al-Ani v Robertson and others a London North industrial tribunal (Chair: S T Gill) rules that it does not have jurisdiction to hear a race discrimination claim under s. 13 of the Race Relations Act 1976 (RRA) arising from the refusal of a barrister's pupillage, because the provision of pupillage is not training directed to fit the pupil for "employment".
