University Law Fairs

With support from the Council of the Inns of Court, the four Inns of Court, COMBAR, the Chancery Bar Association and TECBAr, 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.

You can find out which law fairs we are attending in the 2018/19 season here.
