Bar Council promotes social mobility

A new report shows how the Bar has adopted the widest range of initiatives of any profession to encourage social mobility. The Bar Council, in conjunction with the Inns of Court has launched No bar to the Bar, a review of the diverse measures adopted by the profession to help all those of ability to have access to a career as a barrister, regardless of their background. 'No bar to the Bar' takes stock of the Bar’s continuing work in this area, and gives a snapshot of just some of the talented applicants who have achieved real success at the Bar and within the judiciary. They include: Andrew Powell, a tenant at 4 Paper Buildings, Kate Grange, a tenant at 39 Essex Street and Lady Justice Hallett, a member of the Court of Appeal.
