New Barristers Committee - “My First Year at the Bar: The advice I wish I’d received”


The New Barristers’ Committee is hosting a regular “Zoom Catch Up” series as a way for new barristers to connect with each other and other members of the bar. The first in the series will take place on Friday, 1 October 2021 from 4:30pm and will feature a panel of former readers, Ahmed Rizk, Claire Roberts and Kieran Fitzgerald, discussing, ‘My First Year at the Bar: The advice I wish I’d received’, aimed at readers who commenced in May and September 2021.

Please come along to hear unfiltered advice, tips - and perhaps some amusing anecdotes - aimed at making the transition to the bar easier. Questions can also be submitted in advance by emailing

Registration only, available here.
