On 12th February, four members of 1COR volunteered their time to participate in Inner Temple’s School’s Day event with Warwick University‘s Pathways to Law students.
Michael Deacon and Alice Kuzmenko participated in an insightful Q&A session, providing their perspective on being a junior barrister and a pupil. Neil Sheldon QC and Head of Outreach Jo Moore continued this theme and provided workshops for the students on a career at the Bar.
Delighted that the day went so well, with students commenting that “before today it felt imposing and intimidating. This session really helped dispel this misconception” “Everyone was so friendly and informative.”
1COR wholeheartedly support encouraging access to the Bar and enjoy taking part in outreach events. We also offer an assessed mini-pupillage scheme, aimed at widening participation (details here). For further information on our outreach activities, contact Jo Moore.
