Bar Placement Scheme

The Bar Placement Scheme allows students to spend two days shadowing their barrister in chambers and in court, or taking part in a virtual placement. Participants receive advocacy training from the Inns of Court College of Advocacy. This is an excellent opportunity to build up your skills and CV, and to work out whether a career at the Bar would be suitable for you.


The Bar Council is grateful to the Council of the Inns of Court, the Inns of Court College of Advocacy and the four Inns of Court for supporting the Bar Placement Scheme.

If you are a barrister and your chambers would be interested in hosting a student, please email us or call 020 7611 1396.
