Celina Faugoo recently completed her BPTC with City University of London and has now been called to the Bar. Here, she passes on some valuable advice to prospective BPTC students.   

  Change can be scary for some. But when a course prospectus warns you of the negative repercussions if you are faint-hearted, you start imagining the worst.

Does copyright exist for online artists?

Posted by Emily Craxton on 19 October 2016

Copyright is an often unrecognised or misunderstood right.

Posted by Zenaira Khan on 21 September 2016

"Look to where the Law is going, not where the Law is."

Ayomide Akin-Oteniya recently organised an event at Hogan Lovells on celebrating diversity in the legal industry. The event was comprised of a number of talks for aspiring lawyers, most notably on how technology has diversified the provision of legal services.

In the last 20 years, the legal industry has changed considerably and possibly the most interesting change in recent times has been the types of people who are now becoming lawyers.
