7KBW to support the COMBAR Mentoring Scheme for Under-Represented Groups

3rd Jul 2024

7KBW is delighted to be participating again in the COMBAR mentoring scheme for applicants from groups who are under-represented at the Bar, and the Commercial Bar in particular.

The scheme pairs successful eligible candidates with practitioners from COMBAR member sets for a series of one-to-one mentoring sessions. In order to ensure that as diverse a pool of potential applicants is reached as possible, COMBAR works through the careers departments of all English and Welsh universities with a law department, together with a number of universities in Scotland and Ireland, and a range of third sector organisations such as HerBar, FreeBar, InterLaw, the Social Mobility Foundation and Sutton Trust.

Details of how to apply can be found here.  The deadline is Friday 20 September 2024.
