Graduates say...



“I think City is perhaps more geared towards barristers.”

There's a clear timetable, and they give you two clear days off each week, which you can use for study, or to do mini-pupillages or work.”

Chambers says...



You certainly get bang for your buck at City, but you'll have to pay quite a few bucks, and beat out a fair few applicants, to get in. It's the Grand Old Man of Bar schools, with impressive academics, one-to-one advocacy sessions and a hard-to-beat location surrounded by barristers' chambers. Alternative routes offer would-be students an enviable level of personal attention and small class sizes. Both courses emphasise learning by doing, and there's a range of pro bono and extra-curricular activities to help sharpen your edge. Students with the travel bug can even volunteer in South Africa!
