Study type Taught


Complete the vocational stage of training for practice at the Bar of England and Wales by undertaking a course which will offer you flexible options to unlock your potential and transform your skills from the classroom to the court room.

First and foremost the Bar Vocational Studies programmes are designed to allow students to complete the vocational stage of training for the Bar of England and Wales. They attract students from around the world and from all parts of the UK. In particular, the course is designed for students who want to develop their skills as advocates, and those who want to research and apply the law to help clients in presenting legal cases in court.

The Bar Vocational Studies (Full-time) programme will particularly appeal to those students who relish the opportunity to build skills and acquire knowledge through interaction with professionals and peers, and prefer to follow the usual academic timeline, which fits with pupillage recruitment and allows extended work placements during the summer break.

This is the best option for you, if a regular class structure motivates your study, helps you achieve your goals, and if you benefit from face-to-face learning. You will also receive support in small study groups.

From recent graduates to doctors and front bench opposition MPs, the programmes cater both for those who have always been dedicated to a professional legal career as well as people seeking a career change, and those who are able to make use of the training together with a professional legal qualification in business, management or administration.
