COIC responded on behalf of the Inns of Court to the latest Bar Standards Board ‘Future Bar Training’ consultation. Follow this links the below to download:
Our response argues for the retention of the qualifying law degree (and Graduate Diploma in Law) and the seven core subjects.
The Inns support reform of the BPTC and propose that it should be split into two parts:
- Part One would require students to pass knowledge assessments which students may study for in any way they choose.
- Having successfully completed Part One, students would be eligible to enrol on a Part Two skills course.
COIC affirms the importance of the pupillage stage of training.
