Korean Exchange Programme for young lawyers


The Bar Council and Korean Bar Association jointly organise this exchange programme with the aim of enhancing their members' ability to practise internationally, building the relationship between both professions and enhancing their capacity to work together.

This is a two-way scheme which has now seen two groups of junior barristers head to Seoul, South Korea and two delegations of Korean lawyers visit London to spend time in barristers' chambers.

The Bar Council International Committee is seeking chambers willing to host lawyers from South Korea for one or two weeks between Friday 14 and Friday 28 September 2018.

Please find the application form here

Please return your completed application to Rose Malleson RMalleson@BarCouncil.org.uk by EOB Friday 10 August.

For further information, please contact Jessica Crofts-Lawrence (JCrofts-Lawrence@BarCouncil.org.uk/+44 (0) 207 611 1357).
