Aims and objectives of the BTT

The Bar is a demanding profession. Those called to the Bar of England and Wales must demonstrate the qualities and standards of professionalism that justify the responsibility and trust that may be placed in them by members of the public, including a standard of English that is appropriate for the oral and written advocacy which is necessary for practice. They also play a vital role in the administration of justice. The purpose of the Bar Transfer Test (BTT) is to enable candidates who are qualified lawyers to have the opportunity to transfer to the Bar of England and Wales, without having to undergo the full course of education and training as required in the Academic Stage (Qualifying Law Degree or conversion course) and the Vocational Stage (Bar Professional Training Course, ‘BPTC’).

Principles of Regulation of the BTT by the BSB 

The content and regulation of the BTT are also in line with the Legal Services Board Regulatory Framework.  The Test takes an outcomes based approach to regulation, aimed at ensuring that transferring lawyers are at the right standard (equivalent to the Vocational stage of training) in order to progress to the Professional Stage. This needs to apply right across an increasingly diverse market, keeping as its focus the needs of consumers and possible risks to them in using the services of qualified lawyers from other jurisdictions or professions who aim to transfer to the Bar of England and Wales, and the interests of justice. Upon passing the BTT, transferring lawyers are then regulated in the same way as other fully qualified practicing barristers, with all further requirements enforced in the same way.
