Reference Tip

One thing I wish I was told or found out earlier was the constant need for applicants to supply an academic reference i.e. from your university.

Edit: The Inn of Court scholarship, admission, BVC and Pupillage application forms all require candidates to supply an academic reference and it is the candidate’s responsibility to arrange for references to be sent.

Tip: You should pick someone reliable and give them plenty of notice before the reference has to be submitted. It is also a good idea to supply your referee with any relevant information that might help when writing your reference.
