I am the Bar: A Bar of all, for all

IATB

In Summer 2018, the Bar Council launched 'I am the Bar', to profile the experiences of those who have succeeded at the Bar from non-traditional backgrounds.  The campaign is designed to:

  1. Raise the profile of social mobility and support fair access to the Bar, to encourage aspiring barristers from non-traditional backgrounds. 

  2. Highlight efforts made to improve access to, and diversity within, the profession.

  3. Support efforts to improve insight into the profession by drawing together profession-wide social mobility efforts across chambers, Inns, other organisations and individual barristers.
