  • This must be a really worrying time for bar students. What I want to know is why is the Bar Council not intervening because at this rate the only people who will be able to do the BPTC are those who can turn to the bank of mummy and daddy.

  • Incredibly worrying for someone who is waiting to hear the outcome of a scholarship interview. I for one am wishing that I hadn't already accepted my offer...here's hoping HSBC hurry up with their announcement.

    I think you've answered your own question.

  • Lincoln's Inn has always published its results in mid April and will do so this year. The Inn was not informed by any provider or the Bar Standards Board of the closing date for BPTC applicants. There has never been a problem in the past. With over 300 to interview and £1.4m in scholarships on offer this year it is impossible to bring the dates forward. It would appear that the providers must have done so without consideration of scholarship dates.
