The Bar Mentoring Service (Scheme 2) is designed for Year 12, 13 and First-year undergraduate students. The Scheme is intended to support students from non-traditional backgrounds who are interested in pursuing a career at the Bar. 

All mentoring communications are via an online platform, which can be accessed via www.barmentoring.org.uk, giving participating barristers and students the flexibility and convenience, whilst ensuring it is through a safe platform.  

After a successful pilot, the e-Mentoring scheme will be relaunched to co-incide with Bar Placement Week; 4-8 July 2016.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. 

If you are interested in becoming a mentor for students, please complete an application form online at www.barmentoring.org.uk.

If you are a Year 12, 13 or a first-year Undergraduate student who meets the eligibility criteria, and would like to be mentored, please complete an application form online at www.barmentoring.org.uk

For further details about the scheme, please feel free to contact the Bar Mentoring Service directly via email on Mentoring@BarCouncil.org.uk

"It was a very helpful experience, and allowed me to gain valuable insight from an experienced lawyer; my mentor was able to provide me with a lot of support and guidance, answering any queries I had regarding the legal profession and also providing me with beneficial tips to improve my personal statement for my UCAS application.

Thank you for your help. Hopefully my application for this year will be successful, and I will be able to pursue e-mentoring further." e-Mentee from 2015-2016 Pilot
