    Default Refugee appeal work, Barrister earns 620,000

    Barrister earns €620,000 for refugee appeal work - National News - Independent.ie

    New figures provided by Justice Minister Alan Shatter confirm that Michelle O'Gorman received €623,862 for work on the tribunal between 2008 and last year.

    One of the other top earners is former Foreign Affairs Minister David Andrews, who is a senior counsel. He received €260,363

    The figures show that last year, barristers received an aggregate €324,395

    Is this crazy money WE pay these people
    Should there be a set wage for these people, say 100,000 per year

    This is all true, but there's a thread on this already.

    And people doubt there's a virulent pro-immigration lobby in this country?

    There's certainly a virulent lawyer class in this country. I don't think they care much who's paying.

    Read the article.

    Her average fee is a mid-ranking three figure sum.
    She provided services in just under one and a half thousand cases in the past five years.
    The fee quoted is an aggregated sum over those five years, in which she acted in over a thosand cases.

    The current figure is not much greater than a quarter of a million euros.

    There is nothing startling, nor worrying in the article.

    Remember during one of the tribunals when it emerged that these barristers were being overpaid by E250 per day.

    What happened? Did the tribunal see to it that the taxpayer was reimbursed.

    Did he fvck, they were told to keep it, sher the plebs will only raise an eyebrow
