BECOMING A BARRISTER: WATCH THE FILM AND SEE SOME WONDERFUL AND INSPIRING PEOPLE
I am grateful for the wonderful administrator on the North Eastern Circuit for giving me permission to copy the material they sent out today in relation to the Lincoln’s Inn film on becoming a barrister. It features interviews from practising barristers from underrepresented backgrounds and is designed to encourage more people to consider the Bar as a potential career.
BECOMING A BARRISTER
Lincoln’s Inn have launched a film to bring to life the stories of six of the Inn’s practicing barristers from underrepresented backgrounds.
Created to encourage more people to consider the Bar as a potential career, irrespective of their background, it features interviews with:
- Simon Clarke, Smith Bowyer Clarke Road Transport Lawyers
- Kelly Cronin, Park Square Chambers
- Laura Gould, Kings Chambers
- Mark MacDonald, Furnival Chambers
- Charlotte Pope-Williams, 3 Hare Court (Pinsent Mason LLP at time of filming)
- Natasha Shotunde, Garden Court Chambers
The film highlights the diversity of backgrounds, experiences, and personal characteristics of these Lincoln’s Inn members and the wider profession, challenging the traditional perceptions of who a barrister is and the journey it takes to get there.
They discuss their lives before the Bar and their subsequent journeys into the legal profession, including the challenges and highlights of their chosen career.
