Students, please find below a link to Friday’s press release from the Bar Standards Board (BSB) relating to the August assessments in Professional Ethics and Civil and Criminal Litigation.  You will also find links below to a communication from BPTC providers to students and a flowchart outlining the routes available to you.

  • Professional Ethics – Monday 5 October 2020 2pm – 4.30pm
  • Civil Litigation – Wednesday 7 October 2020 2pm – 5pm
  • Criminal Litigation – Monday 12 October 2020 2pm – 5pm

You will find detailed guidance at the links above, but please note the instruction to register with your BPTC provider for the October sit by 5pm on Monday 21 September.
