University of Portsmouth
STUDENT BAR ASSOCIATION
The University of Portsmouth Student Bar Association was formed through a common goal. To provide direct and targeted activities, advocacy competitions, career-related classes and professional networking to ensure our members achieve their ultimate end state: A career in the Bar.
The core of the BPTC
Advocacy is composed of several areas that, when successfully acquired, form the foundation of a Barrister's skillset. Throughout the year, the SBA will attend and host competitions that are directly targeted towards improving oral advocacy.
We are aware that the goal of a career within the Bar is extremely competitive. Therefore we have designated a Careers Chair who is responsible for arranging classes, events and speakers for our members.
You will most likely get a job from who you know, rather than what you know. For this reason, networking and mentorship play a vital part of our concept of operations.
