Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC)

Exceptional pupillage rates

At The University of Law, we pride ourselves in offering the best legal training - and our Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) is no exception.

Our BPTC is designed to help you secure pupillage and prepare you for life as a barrister. In fact, of our  Full-time UK/EU graduates, 57% secured a pupillage this year.**

You can expect exceptionally high standards of tutoring and a wealth of pro bono opportunity. We’ll support you in preparing pupillage applications, with access to our specialist careers service from the moment you accept your place.

Study with us and double your chances of getting a top grade: 22% of our  Full-time BPTC graduates obtained an ‘Outstanding’ grade, which is more than twice the national average of 9% in.

** 57% secured pupillage by September  at the Bar of England and Wales.

20 years of raising the Bar

To celebrate 20 years of the BPTC at The University of Law, and in recognition of the challenges and costs of pursuing a career at the Bar, we’re reducing this year’s BPTC fees by up to £2,790.***

Follow the link below to discover more about how you'll benefit from our unique Selection Process and Advocacy Committee.


·         Our unique selection process and Advocacy Committee

o    Selection Process

The University of Law is committed to producing exceptional advocates and so, since , has been the only provider that requires all applicants to undergo an assessment before obtaining a place on the BPTC.

We will only offer places to students that we think have a realistic chance of passing the course and going on to obtain pupillage. Our rigorous Selection Process allows us to identify the brightest and most able students, creating a stimulating learning environment for all. As a result, when you undertake the BPTC at The University of Law you can guarantee that you will be studying alongside the committed, focused and intelligent students, which in turn will push you to succeed.

For entry, our selection interviews will take place in February at our Birmingham, Leeds and London Bloomsbury centres.


Those students who make it through the initial paper-sift will be invited to undertake an assessment at the centre of your choice. You will be asked to complete a written exercise; an oral advocacy test and a short interview with one of our BPTC tutors. Entry onto the course will be based solely on candidates' performance on the day. Decisions on our Advocacy Scholarships will be based partly on the candidate’s performance during the oral advocacy test. 

During an assessment you will undertake:

  • A 5 minute 'plea in mitigation' in the magistrates' court - you will be given 40 minutes to prepare
  • A 10 minute interview with a BPTC tutor
  • A 40 minute written exercise where you will be asked to write an opinion, the subject matter of which will be published nearer the time

There is no preparation required and we do not expect you to know any law: this is a test of your raw skills and potential as an advocate.

Advocacy Committee

Our unique Advocacy Committee is made up of the students who excelled during our selection process. Led by the Master or Mistress of the Moots, they arrange entry into prestigious national and international advocacy competitions for BPTC and GDL students, (see below for a list of competitions entered this year). They also arrange numerous internal competitions and workshops in association with local chambers which provide an excellent opportunity to test the skills you’ve developed in the classroom and forge links with leading practitioners.

This year’s competitions include:

  • The International Criminal Court Moot, The Hague
  • Francis Taylor Buildings Kingsland Moot Cup
  • IASLA Space Law Moot Court Competition
  • Insurance Law Moot at Southampton University
  • LSE-Featherstone Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity Moot
  • Oxford International IP Law Moot
  • Southampton Inns of Court Mooting Competition
  • UK Mediation Competition
  • University of Bristol Intervarsity Moot
  • Imperial Novices Debating Competition
  • ESU Debating Competition

  • You must join an Inn of Court before you can start the BPTC. The closing date for application to an Inn of Court is 31 May of the year your BPTC is due to commence. Please contact the relevant Inn for further details:

Bar Course Aptitude Test (BCAT)

Candidates seeking entry to the BPTC are required to pass the Bar Course Aptitude Test (BCAT) before being allowed to enrol on the course. The BCAT will open in April next year. We strongly recommend you sit the test as soon as possible and we will guarantee to hold your offer open until you have successfully passed the test. Should you fail to pass, you are able to re-sit the test after 30 days. As you must successfully pass the test before you can enrol on the BPTC course, we encourage you to sit the test as early as you can – this will allow plenty of time should you need to take it again, before the deadline.
