This  essential volume for all aspiring barristers offers guidance, insights  and advice from new barristers from a diverse range of backgrounds and  practice areas, shedding light on what life is really like for  barristers at the independent Bar.

Each chapter is  candid and honest about the reality of the Bar and how it measures  against student expectations. There is only one Bar, but working in  different practice areas brings different challenges. This book brings  together new practitioners from across the disciplines, from crime to  commercial, from family to employment law, and more, as they each  discuss their workloads, the sorts of cases and tasks that they  typically face and highlight the skills which need to be developed in  the first couple of years. Practical tips around time-management and  finance feature, as well as advice around key social and cultural  issues. The concluding chapter by Jaime Hamilton QC discusses the  transformations that the Bar has undergone and continues to go through.

Accessible  and engaging, this invaluable resource is the perfect guide for anyone  interested in exploring a career at the Bar. It will be an ideal  companion to students of law at any level.
