Study type Taught


Our Barrister Training Course (BTC) covers the integrated knowledge and skills necessary to pass your relevant assessments, including centralised assessments set by the Bar Standards Board (BSB), and commence pupillage.

You will complete Preparing for Pupillage 1 and 2, which are designed to reflect the level and standard of work you can expect to encounter during your first and second six of pupillage. You will learn in the context of realistic case studies, many of which are based on real cases that our experienced tutors have dealt with in practice.

If you don’t secure pupillage within six months of passing the BTC, our Career Guarantee means you’ll be able to study our SQE1 Preparation course or Career Boost package, free of charge.
