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 Hilary 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, 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.
Treasurer –– PPE, University College
Olly is a second year PPE student at Univ. He hopes to make the society more welcoming and inviting to anyone who doesn’t study law. Outside of Oxford, he loves travelling, having spent 6 months exploring Australia and Europe.
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.
Nadia is the Bar Society’s Mooting Officer for Hilary Term. She is the current secretary of the Geldart Law Society who is responsible for organising mooting, a participant in the Cuppers Mooting Competition, and a Linklater’s Oxford Law Access Ambassador. She is also a passionate animal rights activist, after having gone vegan last year.
Angus is a first-year law student at St. Catz. In his free time, he enjoys playing tennis and going to the gym – both closed at the moment unfortunately.
Editor of ‘The Pupil’ Magazine
Matthew is a 4th year Classicist at Somerville College. The Pupil will be the second Oxford society magazine he has edited, after the University Officers’ Training Corps’ Crown and Gown. He had an unwanted introduction to legal studies after accidentally flying a light aircraft into Heathrow’s controlled airspace and being sent on an ‘awareness course.’ He remains undeterred and plans to start a GDL as soon as he graduates.
Sohaib is a first-year studying English at Hertford, which means he’s learning as much about being a barrister without doing a law undergrad as much as he’ll be representing it! He thinks non-lawyers are in a uniquely rewarding position; he had been interested in a legal career, but wasn’t sure if a law degree was also compatible with his creative interests. He has always wanted to study an interdisciplinary course which he can use to launch into a variety of careers, and he is certain there are many students out there who feel the same! Through Bar Soc, he hopes students of any discipline can become familiar with, and see themselves in, a legal career! Or even see themselves using their studies to follow paths they never thought they could!
