FTB members are today welcoming 12 students on the Sutton Trust’s Pathways to Law programme to chambers (virtually) for a work experience insight day. The school students are all high achievers from underrepresented backgrounds with an interest in law. They will participate in a mock licensing hearing, undertake a masterclass on how to read and understand a public law court judgment, and will hear from a panel of members about life at FTB and routes to the Bar.
FTB has established a long-term partnership with the Sutton Trust on its Pathways to Law programme. Our involvement in the programme is aimed at encouraging participating students to consider the Bar as a career option, and to consider a career involving our practice areas specifically.
