The Oxford University Bar Society committee works to organise and run our termly events. For information about our current team, please see below.
President –– Law, Pembroke College
Athena is the Bar Society’s President for Trinity Term. She was part of Oxford’s winning team for the Regional Round of BPP’s Advocate of the Year Competition 2020. She frequently finds herself advocating against people double her size. She is also a passionate musician and plays percussion with the Oxford University Orchestra.
Secretary –– Law, St Anne’s College
Nadia is Oxford Bar Society’s Secretary for Trinity Term. She is the current secretary of the Geldart Law Society, was a finalist in the Cuppers Mooting Competition, and is a Linklater’s Oxford Law Access Ambassador. She is also a passionate animal rights activist, after having gone vegan last year.
Treasurer –– Law, Mansfield College
George is currently a second year law student at Mansfield College. His interests in the law are broad with current pursuits in media and tax. He also moots regularly to practice advocacy.
Editor of ‘The Pupil’ Magazine
Sophie is a first-year law student at Hertford College. She is particularly interested in medical law and enjoyed a mini-pupillage with a barrister specialising in clinical negligence, inspiring her interest in the Bar. She also has a passion for singing and loves the outdoors, helping to lead a Girlguiding unit when home from university.
Caroline is a second-year law student at St Anne’s College. As a last-minute replacement for the Cuppers Mooting team and a Grand Finalist, she only recently encountered the adrenaline rush from debating in front of QCs. She hopes to maximise participation among both law and non-law students, as well as integrating current affairs into mooting problems.
Frantisek is a first-year law student at Corpus Christi College. He’s keen on a career at the bar, but that’s about all he is certain about. He is involved in several student societies and in his college’s JCR. And he is to blame if you don’t receive your Bar Soc emails ;).
Ben is a 2nd Year Law Student at St John’s. He has recently represented Oxford at the International Roman Law Moot, and the University of Derby (In Asosciaton with Westlaw) Company Law Moot. In both, he was on the winning team. Ben has also participated in the DCU (Irish) National Moot Court Competition, reaching semi-finals with his teammates. Within the University, Ben was in the winning team of the OSCOLA Gibson-Dunn Commerical Law Moot, and has participated in Cuppers. Besides mooting, Ben enjoys collecting etymological and historical facts, as well as attempting (badly) to learn German.
Mock Trial Officer
Rivu is a first-year law student at Magdalen College. He has competed in international mock trials and hopes to share the mock trial experience with everyone else. He is also an avid mooter and a musician.
