College of Law in Birmingham launches new part-time course
The College of Law in Birmingham will be offering a part-time Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) from September 2011.
The centre in Great Hampton Street will offer the new BPTC - which runs over two years - from September, after successfully delivering the full-time version of the course for the past four years.
Paul Shoulders, BPTC course leader at The College of Law in Birmingham, says, “The new part-time course opens up the potential rewards of a career at the Bar to people who need to work to support their studies or who have other commitments on their time. The course is designed not only to help students achieve pupillage with a barristers’ chamber but also to prepare them for working life at the Bar. All our tutors have practised, or continue to practise, as barristers or solicitors and some even sit as judges.”
The College of Law in Birmingham is holding two open days for potential students to find out more. These are on Saturday 19th March and Wednesday 30th March. These open days will include talks about the course, the College’s careers service, and its extensive pro bono programme offering the chance to gain real experience of legal work. Current BPTC students will also be on hand to answer questions along with a local barrister, who will give an insight into life at the Bar.
