UK barristers join campaign for social mobility

Many of the barristers have faced challenges in their journeys to becoming barristers, from growing up in the climate of Ghana’s repressive military regime to moonlighting as a cabaret artist

A group of barristers from across England and Wales, known as Social Mobility Advocates, have joined the Bar Council’s award-winning social mobility campaign #IAmTheBar.

The ‘I Am the Bar’ campaign, which was launched in 2018, represents barristers who have come from non-traditional backgrounds and aims to inspire prospective barristers.
