  • The problems with the BPTC are well known and need not be repeated here. However, I have serious reservations about a course provider deciding whether a candidate has a chance at pupillage. The obvious solution would be for candidates to secure a pupillage prior to embarking on the course. It seems that the only reason for not going down that route is to continue milking the cash-cow of foreign lawyers who want to return to their home jurisdictions with the words "called to the Bar of England and Wales". Surely that could be accommodated, perhaps with a non-practising version of the course accompanied by an undertaking that the individual does not intend to practise in England and Wales.
