Social Mobility Advocates 2019

Our Social Mobility Advocates are barristers who have volunteered to tell their stories of coming to the Bar from 'non-traditional' backgrounds, to demonstrate that social mobility at the Bar is an important and realistic goal, and to help inspire and advise the next generation of barristers. The Advocates also participate in outreach and press and media work. 

The following barristers have been selected as 2019 Social Mobility Advocates.
