About this event

This online session provides an opportunity for candidates without a law background to speak with tutors and existing students about studying for the Bar at BPP University Law School.

This Virtual Open Evening will cover the route to qualifying as a barrister as a non-law graduate. The evening will be split into two sessions:

  • the first will cover our Law Foundations Course (also known as the PGDL), a course designed to build your foundational knowledge and skills; and
  • the second session will then focus on our Barrister Training Course (BTC), which will help you prepare for the BSB’s centralised assessments, gain the competitive edge you need to secure pupillage and prepare for life as a barrister.

Discover how you can fund your legal studies

If you’re considering your financial options, learn how you can qualify for a postgraduate loan of up to £11,570 towards your legal education through one of our Master’s programmes. You could also be eligible for other funding options including scholarships and bursaries.

Know what it takes to secure Pupillage

Got ambitions for a future career as a barrister? Then you’ll need to secure a Pupillage. Learn what you can do to enhance your credentials and maximise your chances with advice from our Careers Service.

Gain legal work experience, before you step into practice

Mini pupillages and other work experience have been in short supply during the pandemic, so you can enhance your CV by volunteering for one or more projects, at our award-winning Pro Bono Centre, which will give you real client experience.

Hear from our expert practitioners

As a leading Law School, you will also benefit from the advice of expert tutors at our open evening.
