Become-a-Barrister.com

The Bar Council along with the four Inns of Court, has today launched a new careers website to provide a range of accessible information to school and university students.

'Become a barrister’ (www.become-a-barrister.com) is a new portal for anyone interested in a career at the Bar and includes a series of films and case studies aimed at 'demystifying' entry to the profession.

The portal will be launched at Inner Temple, and will include contributions from the Chairman of the Bar, Peter Lodder QC, the Master of the Rolls, Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury and the Treasurer of Inner Temple, Lady Justice Hallett.

Peter Lodder QC said:

“I am delighted that we are able to launch become a barrister today and to continue to highlight the importance of enabling the best candidates to come to the Bar, regardless of background.

“Thanks must go to Lincoln’s Inn, Inner Temple, Middle Temple and Gray’s Inn for their financial and practical support in creating both the films and the website, as well as for the substantial work which they do in removing barriers to entry.”
