Future Bar Training seminar

How should students train for the Bar in the future?

We are hosting a seminar to discuss key questions like this, and others, in relation to our recently launched Future Bar Training consultation.

The seminar will be on Tuesday 14 November, 6.30pm - 8pm in the Dickens Suite at Holborn Bars, London, EC1N 2NQ. The session will focus

  • on the role of the Inns of Court;
  • future rules for pupillage;
  • our framework to assess new training programmes; and 
  • other topics covered by our most recent consultation.

The seminars will give you the opportunity to hear and comment on the principles guiding our proposals so that your views can inform any future approach in these areas. Vanessa Davies, Director General of the Bar Standards Board, will chair an open discussion at the seminar to consider the themes further. Light refreshments and a drinks reception will be provided. 

The session will be streamed live and a video recording of the event will be uploaded on to our website. Please bear this in mind during the evening.

If you would like to attend, or you would like any further information, please email ContactUs@BarStandardsBoard.org.uk  stating the seminar you would like to attend with any accessibility and dietary requirements you may have by 8 November 2017. Please reply as soon as possible as spaces will be limited.
