University Law Fairs

With support from the Council of the Inns of Court, the four Inns of Court and COMBAR, the Bar Council ensures that the Bar is represented at University Law Fairs in every Circuit. In most cases, fairs are attended by a representative from one of the Inns of Court and a practising barrister. By attending law fairs, we aim to:

  • Ensure that a range of students (both law and non-law) can access information on routes to the profession
  • Enable students to find out about funding options for the qualifications needed to become a barrister, and
  • Reach a broad range of students from low participation backgrounds.

To add an additional law fair, the university must:

  • Provide the space for free (the Bar Council attends law fairs to support students interested in pursuing a career in the law, not to recruit students or pursue any commercial interest); and
  • Have over 10% low participation students, according to the POLAR4 benchmark.
