As I write this blog I’ll be covering my time on the course as well as my qualifying sessions with my Inn of Court, The Inner Temple. My mantra for my time on the BPTC is “onwards and upwards”. I survived the GDL, so now it is time for me to progress on with my journey to get Blessing to the Bar!
I hope you enjoy reading and don’t forget to share this blog with anyone who might enjoy it! If you have any questions or suggestions of content that I could post, don’t hesitate to connect with me on my Social Media and ask!
I thought it would be interesting to just live-blog what’s happening during the first proper week of classes on the BPTC. Wish me luck…
As I begin turning my mind to the year ahead, there are still some essentials I have to get out of the way before I begin the BPTC. The first (and definitely most important) item on my to do list is the BCAT. Read on for what it is, why you have to do it to start Bar school and how I prepared for it.
Starting on the 2nd July 2018, the Bar Council launched a week-long social mobility campaign on Twitter. Using the hashtag #IAmTheBar, they sought to highlight the non-traditional journeys to the Bar of their Social Mobility Advocates. As a first generation African Immigrant aspiring to become a barrister, #IAmTheBar is so much more than a hashtag.
