Governor and former pupil Nigel Booth (OS 1989) returned to the SGS Library for a ‘Spotlight On…’ talk about law. Nigel spoke about the differences between becoming a barrister or a solicitor and the varying pathways into law. He also talked about how new regulations are making it easier and welcoming more diverse educational backgrounds. After leaving SGS Nigel studied Law and German Law at King's College London and he was called to the Bar in 1994 and since then has been based in Manchester. Whilst remaining a member of Chambers at 9 St John Street, in September 2020 Nigel joined the University of Law in Manchester to teach the criminal part of the Bar Practice Course – skills, litigation, evidence and sentencing – to prospective barristers. This background has made him to perfect speaker to talk to nearly 30 perspective lawyers at SGS. #SGSInspires #SGSAlumni #SGSLibrary #SGSCommunity #SGSOpportunity #SpotlightOntalk #barrister #solicitor #law #germanlaw #9StJohnStreet #UniversityOfLawManchester #UniversityOfLaw u_law #BarPracticeCourse
