Bar Professional Training Course

Life at the Bar is not simply a career; it is a vocation. No two days are alike. The diverse nature of cases and clients require the successful barrister to possess a range of practical and intellectual skills. Northumbria's BPTC will equip you with the skills and attitude that augur well for a highly successful career, not only at the Bar, but across the legal profession, business and politics.

We teach skills in small groups, enabling great student-staff contact. Our teaching team is composed mostly of experienced barristers and solicitors. You will therefore benefit from the highest quality of practice-informed teaching and feedback tailored to your individual developmental needs.

Our outstanding facilities, including our mock courtrooms and extensive IT provision, will enhance your learning experience. You will also have the unique opportunity of applying to study in our award-winning Student Law Office, delivering real legal representation, in real cases to real clients.

Northumbria Law School's close links with the Bar and judiciary of the North East also provides you with excellent mini-pupillage and marshalling opportunities. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to compete for our excellent overseas legal placements.

Your career is our priority. We will prepare you for job interviews (pupillage or otherwise) with mock interviews; an exercise which has yielded notable results. In all respects, you will leave our BPTC as a highly accomplished and highly attractive employment prospect.
