The Bar: What's it like for Women? - London Event
Wednesday, 14th February 2018
One Essex Court is a leading set of barristers’ Chambers, specialising in commercial litigation and arbitration.
Fewer women than we would like are applying for a career at the Commercial Bar. In order to encourage women to consider this career, we are holding an information event on Tuesday 13 March 2018 in London: Parliament Chamber, Inner Temple, Crown Office Row, London, EC4Y 7HL.
Three female members of Chambers of varying seniority will give short talks about their experiences of life and work at the Commercial Bar followed by a question & answer session. There will then be an opportunity for students to talk informally over drinks to those and several other members of Chambers and clerks. The event is open to women and men and to law and non-law students. A flyer for the event is attached. Students can book their place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be live-streaming the event and those unable to attend in person are welcome to watch the live-stream. For details, please see our website www.oeclaw.co.uk/pupillage/women-at-the-bar

The International Legal and Professional Development Grant Programme
Thursday, 8th February 2018
The International Legal and Professional Development Grant Programme allows barristers of seven years practice or less who are in employed or self-employed practice to apply for financial assistance to participate in international legal events of their choice, which contribute to their professional development.
Established by the International Committee of the Bar Council in 2009, the programme is supported by the Bar Council Scholarships Trust. The programme plays an important part of the Bar Council's international strategy, which aims to encourage more junior barristers to participate in activities which will give them an international perspective on legal issues and help them to thrive in an increasingly globalised legal market.
Grants of up to £2,500 can be applied for and applicants must be a fully qualified barrister, working in an employed or self-employed practice, and a member from one of the supporting Specialist Bar Associations or Circuits.
"Without [YBC's] support I would not have been able to have achieved something that I have always wanted to so thank you again. The scheme…is one of the truly wonderful aspects to the Bar" Jack Henry, 2017 recipient of the International Grant, at the International Law Weekend in New York, 2017.
Since 2009, we have awarded over 100 grants, which have helped junior barristers to participate in key international events and programmes in jurisdictions such as South Korea, Hong Kong, Brazil, Japan, France, Singapore, and the United States.
The application deadline for 2018 is: Monday 5th March.
Queries should be directed to the Young Barristers' Committee or call + (0) 207 611 1323.
