The University of Hertfordshire’s authorisation with the Bar Standards Board
The Bar Standards Board (BSB) has decided to vary the University of Hertfordshire’s authorisation to deliver vocational Bar training. The BSB’s decision means that the University must now defer its next Bar course intake to January 2024.
The BSB has made this decision in the interests of students. The University has cooperated with us and put a plan in place to strengthen a number of aspects of its course delivery to ensure that it is complying with the mandatory requirements in the Authorisation Framework. This decision provides time for these changes to be embedded.
The BSB will continue to work with the University to ensure the necessary improvements are implemented to enable the Bar course to be offered in January 2024. Meanwhile the University is supporting students who had enrolled on the 2023/24 course either to defer entry to the Bar course or to transfer to another provider.
