Actions and Detail Panel
'No bar to the Bar' Panel event
Wed, 22 Feb 2017, 18:30 – Wed, 22 Mar 2017, 20:00 GMT
This year Bar Soc has a renewed focus on diversity. We want to encourage those from underrepresented and disadvantaged backgrounds to consider the profession.
We want to disprove the stereotype of the typical barrister and show our members that anyone, with the right skills and a determination to succeed at the Bar, should be able to do just that.
As much as we can't change the statistics, we want to instil these positive ideas in your minds before you even start training. We don’t want feelings like ‘the Bar is not for people like me’ to become self-fulfilling prophecies.
On Wednesday, we will be welcoming 3 successful barristers: Diya Sen Gupta, Blackstone Chambers, Natasha Dzameh, St Johns Chambers and Kriti Upadhyay, Guildhall Chambers who we hope will inspire you, the barristers of the future!
Each panellist will speak about their route to the Bar and their practice. There will then be a panel Q&A.
This event is not to be missed!
