The pass rate in the Bar's vocational course was up this year, from 85 to nearly 90 per cent. A disparity still exists, however, between the marks of white students and those from ethnic minority backgrounds, whose pass rate hovered on the 80 per cent mark. But it is a considerable improvement on the 1992 figure of 55 per cent that led to the setting-up of the Barrow Committee.

The College of Law's legal practice course (LPC) has been passed by more than 85 per cent of students. Results from other institutions offering the LPC are being collated by the Law Society.
