Following the Bar Standards Board (BSB) decision in August 2023 to vary the University of Hertfordshire’s authorisation to deliver vocational Bar training, we are pleased to report that we have now decided to allow the University to recommence course delivery from September 2024.

The BSB has worked with the University over the last year to ensure the necessary improvements are being implemented and we recognise the considerable work put in by the University to ensure that appropriate standards are met. We will continue to closely monitor course delivery to ensure that the University is complying with the mandatory requirements in the Authorisation Framework and that students are properly supported.

Notes to editors

The University of Hertfordshire was granted authorisation by the Bar Standards Board in November 2021 to deliver vocational Bar training and the University went on to commence its first Bar course in September 2022.
