We must love and support each other! We have nothing to lose but our chains. – ASSATA SHAKUR



Hi, my name is Blessing Mukosha Park and I am an aspiring barrister. I hold a BA in History and Politics from the University of Warwick and I completed the Graduate Diploma in Law in July 2018. In September 2018 I will begin the BPTC.

I decided to start this blog because it was apparent to me that the Bar is still in need of some de-mystification because not enough people really understand what barristers are, what they do and how you become one.

This blog will show you my journey to the Bar step by step. From GDL to BPTC, Pupillage applications to Pupillage, I hope to help anyone considering a career at the Bar to make their decision.

The Advice section includes tips for aspiring Lawyers and my Law blog  is where I tackle legal issues that I find interesting as well as reflect on issues facing aspiring barristers.

I hope you enjoy reading! If you know someone who may need to read this blog be sure to share posts with them! Don’t forget to keep up with me on my Social Media!
