The BarLink programme provides an experience that no amount of simply reading about a barrister’s job can give. It was a great opportunity to not only see first-hand some excellent advocacy but the extended duration of the programme allowed me to gain important insight into the everyday demands of the profession. It was especially rewarding and motivating for me as an aspiring lawyer to be able to see the positive impact barristers can have on their clients and the community. Fiona Ding (Year 2)
