Emily Andrew, a Law student whose dreams of becoming a barrister are a step closer after she won a highly coveted legal training place, has graduated.
Emily, who studied Law with Forensic Psychology, is currently studying the Barrister Training Course (BTC) and Master of Laws at BPP University Law School, in Birmingham. Following that, she commences pupillage (the paid training period required to fully qualify as a barrister) with the Crown Prosecution Service in September 2023. “To gain pupillage before commencing the BTC, when it has only a 7 per cent success rate for BTC graduates per year, is one of my proudest achievements, and something I would not have been capable of achieving without the unmatched support from the University of Worcester,” she said.
“The support from Worcester is unmatched,” she said. “From the very beginning of my studies, the staff team were supporting us every step of the way. I never felt like I was bothering anyone with questions or queries. The staff knew the students by name, and this small touch makes the team so much more approachable, and certainly made a massive difference to me. I also found the careers team to be hugely supportive and encouraging."
