Bar Standards Board statement on BARSAS application system

12 January 2015

A BSB spokesperson said: "A number of concerned students have told us they have been experiencing technical difficulties with the Bar Student Application Service (BARSAS). We appreciate this can be a stressful time for applicants but the BSB has no responsibility for the design or operation of the BARSAS, which is managed by the Bar Professional Training Course providers. We suggest that individuals having trouble using the service email technical@barsas.com or contact one of the Providers (it does not matter which one). Please be aware that Providers manage their own application processes and so any questions about extensions to the deadline should be directed to them."
