Pegasus Access and Support Scheme (PASS)

PASS is a leading programme designed to support aspiring barristers who have not yet started the BPTC. 

PASS was established by the Inner Temple and 62 different partner chambers across a range of practice areas. 

Our aim is to improve access to the profession and to support high achieving students from under-represented backgrounds by providing the experiences they need to be able to thrive at the Bar. 

PASS aims to do this by securing a mini-pupillage in chambers for each participant. PASS also supports participants by providing a focused professional and advocacy skills development programme.  

The Inner Temple covers the associated travel and accommodation costs for PASS so that the participants can fully enjoy the mini-pupillage experience and the development programme.We’re looking for candidates who have attended a UK state school and who meet at least one of the following criteria: 

  • Recipient of free schools meals 
  • First in their family to attend university 
  • Have parents (s) who received income support or they themselves are in receipt of income or housing benefits
  • School area: Preference is given to those students who have attended schools with a low attainment and progression to higher education rate

Preference for PASS is given to applicants who have participated in the following programmes: 

  • Inner Temple schools project 
  • Pathway to Law 
  • Social Mobility Foundation programmes
  • Warwick Multicultural Scholars programme
  • Black Lawyers Directory Legal Launch Pad 
  • Urban Lawyers
