    Hello, a couple of people have asked us this question (see comments above). I think it is probably best to check with the Bar Council, who is running the competition.

    Hello, I think you’ll have to ask the Bar Council since they are running this competition. I notice that the section on the rules on the entry form includes an email address for submitting entries. I would contact the Bar Council to ask your question using that email address.

    Hello,
    I am a third year student pursuing my B.A.LLB (Hons) from India. Am I also eligible to participate in the competition. Because the entry form says
    “The competition is open to pupils, law degree students and Common Professional Examination, (including any Graduate Diploma in law course, recognised as a CPE Course) and Bar Vocational Course students in England and Wales.”
    So i guess B.A.LLB is recognised as a CPE COurse.
