About this product
- DescriptionMisunderstandings and jargon prevent many from seriously considering a career as a barrister in the belief that such a career is t for them or that they are t for it. Others kw that they might want to become barristers but t how to go about it, or just want to kw more about this somewhat mysterious profession. This book, written by two barristers, clearly but informally explains the traditions, termilogy and institutions of the Bar, and what it is actually like to be a barrister. With this aim, several barristers practising in different fields describe in detail a typical week in their life. Advice is then given on how to be accepted into, fund and survive the various academic and other stages that precede qualification as a barrister, including work experience, Bar School and pupillage (the barrister's apprenticeship). It explains how to transfer to the Bar, for the benefit of solicitors, overseas lawyers or those in a n-legal career. This third edition is fully updated to take account of the most recent changes to the Bar, training for it, and the process of recruitment to it.
