In partnership with The Times newspaper, 2TG has run a national mooting competition for the last eight years. For full details please click here.
The competition is uniquely accessible and is at the heart of our aim as a chambers to promote access to the Bar for all.
It provides an opportunity for all students in higher education to compete, regardless of their educational institution or background. The committee strives to remove all barriers (economic and geographical) to participation and successfully attracts applications from a diverse range of backgrounds.
Media coverage relating to this year’s competition can be found here.
In addition to the 2TG moot, we regularly work with a number of local schools and charities to promote access to the Bar for those from non-traditional backgrounds.
We participate in the Bar Placement Week organised by the Social Mobility Foundation which allows talented young people from non-traditional backgrounds to gain an insight into the profession.
2TG also has an ongoing partnership with an Academy school in inner London and provides work experience opportunities and advice to students interested in a career at the Bar.
