A video on what exactly it’s like to be a barrister during your first few years. Also some good advice and tips on becoming a barrister, and what you need to do to fully prepare and get your CV looking great. Some of the tips also apply for getting a training contract. Full credit goes to the College of Law.
As you can probably tell the man from this video isn’t from the UK. However his advice is still great for UK students when building up your CV / resume. Getting the grades you want from uni should only be one of the many things you accomplish in order to get yourself recognised by the best law firms. In my experience simply being good at law isn’t enough to obtain a training contract.
