Opportunities for Schools

The Bar Council has developed a number of outreach projects for schools. These schemes offer schools and students to engage with the profession and to learn about the path to becoming a barrister. The Bar Council has developed these schemes in order to improve access to the Bar, and to support and encourage the next generation of barristers.

Our projects include:

  • The Barristers in Schools scheme

  • Bar Placement Week

  • Career Days

All of our projects are supported by individual barristers and chambers. 

The Bar Council has also developed resources and projects on Public Legal Education for schools. 

You can find further information about each scheme on the tab. If you are a teacher and would like to discuss any of these schemes, please get in touch at Careers@BarCouncil.org.uk.
