Legal Technology in Practice

Our first session with Catherine Bamford was a huge success. The attendees learned all about the legal technology lawyers are using today at each stage of a legal transaction. Catherine gave real examples from many different areas of law being practiced in law firms large and small. The course will help you to explain what legal technology is and be able to better answer innovation questions in applications and interviews too!

To learn more about legal tech and the work Catherine does visit BAM Legal.

BRYTER Hackathon

We know that technology is a core part of your life and will continue to play an increasingly important role in both your education and your working life. That's why we are collaborating with BRYTER to hold a Hackathon exclusively for BARBRI students. The purpose of this Hackathon is to encourage students to explore how technology can be a tool for learning, and how it can be used in their professional careers going forward.

The Hackathon will be a full-day event held in London in November. BARBRI students will be asked to submit an application by creating a short video explaining why they want to participate.

What our partners say...

BARBRI really is being brilliantly visionary, innovative and proactive in creating and delivering opportunities to those seeking to enter the profession, in particularthose where obstacles might appear to be insurmountable.  Linklaters is delighted to work with BARBRI and Breaking Barriers in relation to its support of refugee lawyers and anticipates working on other important projects going forward. Watch this space.

There is no national strategy to support refugees in the UK to take their first steps into work. This leads to unemployment, exclusion. and untapped potential. With support from partners such as BARBRI, we can help people from a refugee background to access the legal profession and acquire the knowledge, confidence, experience and qualifications they need to gain stable, fulfilling employment matching their skills and aspirations.
