Helping teens learn how to become a barrister

Two Law academics are developing educational resources related to becoming a barrister having been awarded nearly £21,00 by the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple.

The Law School’s Deputy Teaching Director Dr Neil Graffin and Dr Emma Jones, the former Teaching Director who has recently moved to the University of Sheffield but remains as an Associate Lecturer, will complete this project by July 2020.

The online materials are being designed for 14 to 16 year olds who may not yet have decided what to study at university and so need to understand the role of a barrister and how to become one. There will also be resources for parents and carers, as well as for barristers and even judges to deliver sessions in schools.

The Inner Temple, as it is commonly known, is one of the four Inns of Court (professional associations for barristers and judges) in London. You must belong to one of these inns to be called to the Bar and practise as a barrister in England and Wales.
