Step up to the Bar

Presented by the Victorian Bar, Step Up to the Bar will inform lawyers, students and the interested members of the general public of what to expect in a career at the Bar.

Find out what life at the Bar is like from the barristers who’ve done it all before — from setting up Chambers to establishing a client base, appearing in Court and balancing work and family life. Discover how you might become a barrister. Learn about the Bar Readers’ Course and what it’s like to sit the bar exam. Hear about the clerking system — how to become a barrister’s clerk or how to find one. Find out about our mentoring program.

After the panel, attendees have the opportunity to meet members of the VicBar, legal service providers and clerks.
