Bar Readers’ Course

The Association’s information about the Bar Readers’ Course is continuously being updated but the best preliminary resource is the Course Handbook (link provided below). Thereafter, please contact the Course Co-ordinator (presently Nicola Julius) at bre.assistant@sabar.org.au if you are interested in undertaking the Course or have any questions about its requirements. All enquiries will be treated confidentially.

An Information night for persons interested in joining the independent referral Bar in South Australia and undertaking the Bar Readers’ Course will be held in early March 2019. If you wish to attend, please email bre.assistant@sabar.org.au to register your interest.

Applications to undertake the Bar Readers Course in 2019 will be due by early April 2019 (although earlier applications are welcomed). Please see the Application Form for more details.
