Introduction

What We Do

BCKR is run by lawyers, for lawyers. Our members are solicitors and barristers working in law firms, legal departments or simply as individuals.  Some have already retired from the law.

We prepare you for trusteeships, non-executive appointments, consulting and a host of other opportunities, through our highly regarded webinars, courses and coaching.  Whether you’re wanting to make your mark as a young lawyer, to refresh mid-career or to work out what happens next in the run up to retirement, BCKR can help you make your working life more fulfilling. Our excellent online offering is available to our members wherever they are in the world and at all stages of their career.

 

Our History

BCKR was launched in 2013 by highly successful City lawyers frustrated by the difficulties of building a portfolio life after leaving their firms.  They had discovered, somewhat to their surprise, that lawyers were not always regarded as particularly useful outside their day job, and that the lawyers themselves were not well versed in how to prove otherwise.  Recognising the strength and depth of talent that lawyers can in fact bring to many roles and scenarios, they set out to change things for the better.
