On Twitter, we asked members of the Bar to share their journeys to the Bar and the obstacles they overcame to reach it using the hashtag #IAmTheBar.

Through the use of this particular hashtag, we seek to dispel any myths or preconceptions that to succeed as barrister you must fit a certain profile or come from a particular background. These non-traditional stories and personal quotes help to exemplify a common vision of an accessible and truly representative Bar. 

Search  #IAmTheBar on Twitter to find more stories of inspiring, non-traditional journeys to the Bar.
