    Edmonds v Lawson QC and others [2000] IRLR 18 HC (0 other reports)

In Edmonds v Lawson QC and others 24.9.99 High Court, the High Court declares that a pupil barrister who had attained the age of 26 was a "worker" within the meaning of the National Minimum Wage Act 1998 because she was employed under a contract of apprenticeship. She was, therefore, entitled to the national minimum wage.
