Pupillages are provided by sets of Chambers, and some organisations such as the Crown Prosecution Service. They are paid (currently a minimum of ?5,000 for the first sixth, and ?5,000 guaranteed earnings for the second sixth). The competition is extremely fierce, and it often takes a couple of years to get a place in Chambers.
In the United Kingdom, the typical earnings for self-employed barristers, before deduction of tax and chambers' charges, range from £25,000 - £150,000 while a senior level barrister’s typical earnings before deduction of tax is estimated to be between the range of £65,000 - £1,000,000 gross for ten or more years of call.
Barristers can receive from £25,q000 to £300,000 per year. Self employed barristers can earn much higher depending on their work load. For more information see: http://www.prospects.ac.uk/barrister_salary.htm
Barristers are paid within a range £24, 000 - £32, 000 a year. Experienced employed barristers earn in the range of £50, 000 - £100, 000, depending on the employer and the type of work undertaken. They usually specialise in one, or perhaps two, specific areas of law.
The money paid for barristerial services will largely depend on the work undertaken. Self employed barristers earn more than their counterparts in government or companies. The earnings range from less than 40,000 for barristers starting out to well over 800,000.

Barristers require more training (they get 'called to the bar' and solicitors don't) and can deal with more cases, so they would get paid more.
