Barrister Delivers Fascinating Careers Talk

23 February 2023

Students from Years 9, 10 and 11 were treated to a fascinating insight into the legal profession on Wednesday morning, as Barrister, James Jarvis, visited the school to deliver a careers talk!

James – who is an associate of KBG Chambers (the largest barrister chambers in Plymouth, Exeter and Truro) – provided advice on how to progress into the profession, explained exactly what the role as a barrister involves, and led fun, insightful activities where all students in attendance were involved.

Indeed, one activity saw our pupils help create a courtroom scenario, during which James delivered questions as both the prosecution and defence, highlighting the difference in styles of questioning, the answers of the subject, and much more.

A big thank you to James for visiting us and sharing his fantastic knowledge and expertise with our students in such an entertaining manner!
