Michael Baker did another presentation on behalf of Bar None

14th October 2021

Michael Baker did another presentation on behalf of Bar None - The Western Circuit campaign for recruitment of state school and BAME entrants into the profession for "A Bar Without Barriers" 

Students at St Ives School were very surprised to learn that you can become a barrister without a law degree. Many barristers (including Michael) got another degree , then qualified for Bar School in one year with the Postgraduate Diploma in Law. Not a lot of people know that. 

St Ives budding lawyers were very interested in the constitutional obligation of jury service , and whether you could get out of it !

Michael does another presentation "Why you should be a lawyer !" in Cornish schools and 6th Form colleges, and supports the Bar Mock Trial competition

 

If you are a school or college and your students would like to hear about routes into a very interesting and rewarding profession, please contact KBG Chambers or barnone@westerncircuit.co.uk
