On 26 March 2021, three of 3PB’s regulatory barristers specialising in inquests were invited by the University of Bristol Bar Society to share their experiences of their own personal journey to the Bar in a talk entitled ‘No Bar to the Bar - Inquests and Inquiries at the Bar Talk'.

Elisabeth Bussey-Jones, Susan Jones and Sunyana Sharma shared stories of how they came to practise in inquest work, a recount of day to day life as a barrister and the challenges faced in their professional careers.

Head of 3PB’s inquests team, Elisabeth Bussey-Jones said ‘’It was a very well-attended event. The three of us gave a very enthusiastic talk about not only our career as a barrister but also the how rewarding it is to work in this area, particularly as we are helping interested parties understand how someone came by their death.’’
