Charity campaign manager-turned-human rights lawyer Steve Broach — who was called to the Bar in 2008 — shares wisdom gleaned from this year’s pupil selection process at glamour set Doughty Street.


Over to Broach…

You’ve got to be clever AND nice.

If you haven’t got a first you need an LLM.

Concern yourself with the rights of specific groups of humans.

Avoid anything that could be seen as flakey.

Fakes will be found out.

For human rights lawyers, 30 is the new 20.

Life goes on despite the cuts.

Oh, and once you bag the job, you need to get up early. Note the time Broach posted his tweets.
