3PB Barristers (3 Paper Buildings) has announced its continued partnership with Bridging the Bar for another year. 3PB has been a partner of Bridging the Bar since July 2022.

Bridging the Bar aims to support aspiring barristers from a range of statistically underrepresented groups at the Bar. Founded in 2020, Bridging the Bar believes that the “bridge” between the Bar we see today and the Bar that is best reflective of our society can be achieved through three core objectives: Equal access to opportunity, Collaboration and Transparency.

The charity works to connect those from non-traditional backgrounds to build the skills, experience and networks needed to develop a career at the Bar through work experience opportunities, mentoring, personal development workshops and enabling access to the resources that can help better their chances at securing pupillage.

3PB’s specialist commercial barrister Aaron MayersAaron MayersCall: 2018 is Vice Chairperson at Bridging the Bar, having joined the charity prior to its formal constitution with the intention of creating positive, tangible change within the profession. On the partnership, Aaron says: "I am proud to be a member of a chambers which promotes equality of opportunity and actively supports other organisations which do the same. Without the support of our partners, this year’s BTB Academy, and the great opportunities we have been able to provide to 100 of our most impressive future barristers, would not have been possible. It is therefore great to see this partnership extended for another year."
