Great! But can be greater!

I practically stumbled upon this fantastic Podcast! Awesome! The part on ‘How to become a Barrister’ happens to be my favorite. However, I think the narrative is skewed towards individuals who schooled in the UK. There’s a Bar Transfer Scheme for foreign qualified lawyers which dispenses with the need for the BPTC.

Thanks
