About BARBRI Bridges
BARBRI Bridges is an inclusive way to empower lawyers in creating a profession that is more representative of today’s society. As well as preparing you for SQE success with five decades of experience in the legal education sector, we’re breaking down financial obstacles to reduce barriers to qualification too so that aspiring lawyers from all walks of life have access to equal opportunities.
Introducing BARBRI Bridges
In September 2021, the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE) was officially introduced. We believe the new route to qualification will reduce existing barriers and strengthen diversity and representation of those working in the legal industry. We have launched BARBRI Bridges to help actively support this change in the profession.
Key funding pillars
To help make BARBRI Bridges a reality, we’ve already partnered with a number of firms, charities and universities to help shape a funding model that meets the needs of the industry.
With £75,000 pledged so far through various partnership schemes and our own scholarship programmes, we’re working to increase diversity within the legal profession in England and Wales, one lawyer at a time.
