Essex Bar Society

University Of Essex


The Essex Bar Society has an important place in the history of our university as an important lynchpin in the professional development of barristers. We recognise the barriers to entry that the profession is perceived to have, and therefore offer free membership to students wishing to explore a career at the Bar, enabling anyone to sign up. Out of 100 barristers, 80 of those would have attended Oxbridge, 12 of the remaining would have attended a Russel Group University, leaving us belonging to the remaining 8. It is no secret that becoming a barrister is a tremendous feat, Essex Bar Society is committed and nurturing the talented group of individuals that belong to our university's community to make the Bar a more representative and inclusive place. Together we are stronger, together We Are Essex.
