Falcon Chambers are pleased to announce that we have joined a mentoring scheme aimed at groups underrepresented at the Bar, together with other planning, property, and public law sets (Landmark Chambers, Cornerstone Barristers, Field Court Chambers, Francis Taylor Building, and Kings Chambers, 39 Essex Chambers and No 5 Chambers). The Planning and Environment Bar Association supports the scheme. It is intended to encourage undergraduates and postgraduates from groups that are not well represented at the Bar to consider becoming barristers. These underrepresented groups include women, people from minority ethnic backgrounds and people from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds.
The Bar should be open to all who have the requisite ability, and we hope that the mentoring scheme will continue to help talented individuals who might not think the Bar is for them to understand what the Bar has to offer and how to become a barrister, and to assist in the application process.
Successful applicants will be offered one-to-one meetings with a mentor, a workshop on applications for pupillage and one or more social events with mentors and other mentees.
