We are offering ten free student places for the Bar session of Legal Cheek’s Future of Legal Education and Training Conference on Wednesday 23 May.

The session features TED-style talks from the Supreme Court’s Lord Briggs, the Bar Standards Board’s Dr Vanessa Davies, Hardwicke’s PJ Kirby QC, the Council of the Inns of Court’s James Wakefield, and Bar Squared’s Helen Ford. There is then a short break followed by a Question Time-style panel discussion and audience questions. Afterwards there are refreshments and networking.

The speakers will consider how tech, and innovation more broadly, will affect the Bar over the years ahead, and with that in mind share their views on how barrister training should evolve to adequately prepare the next generation of advocates. Also on the agenda will be proposals to split the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) into two parts, with more of the course potentially delivered online.

Apply to attend below. You’ll be asked to submit a CV and two questions for the panel.

The Bar session of the Future of Legal Education and Training Conference has been made possible by the support of Hardwicke and Bar Squared.
