Becoming a Barrister

Welcome to ‘Becoming a Barrister’

Welcome to ‘Becoming a Barrister’, a set of resources produced for The Honourable Society of the Inner Temple in conjunction with academics at The Open University and the University of Sheffield.

Part 1 of these resources, Learning about barristers, is aimed at students aged 14–16 years old who are interested in a career as a barrister or simply want to find out more about what barristers do and the role they play in the justice system in England and Wales.

Part 2 of these resources, Supporting an aspiring barrister, provides support and guidance about becoming a barrister for parents, carers, families and teachers. This includes an interactive tool to help parents, carers and families support aspiring barristers with their career plans and guidance for teachers on incorporating Part 1 into the national curriculum.

Part 3 of these resources, Planning an outreach session, is aimed at existing barristers and judges. It provides useful guidance, including an interactive lesson planning tool, to assist them in planning outreach sessions in school, college and community settings.
