I am the Bar: A Bar of all, for all


In Summer 2018, the Bar Council launched 'I am the Bar', to profile the experiences of those who have succeeded at the Bar from non-traditional backgrounds. The award-winning campaign is designed to:

  1. Raise the profile of social mobility and support fair access to the Bar, to encourage aspiring barristers from non-traditional backgrounds. 

  2. Highlight efforts made to improve access to, and diversity within, the profession.

  3. Support efforts to improve insight into the profession by drawing together profession-wide social mobility efforts across chambers, Inns, other organisations and individual barristers.
