Brigitta Balogh is looking to raise £1,800 to cover registration costs.
A University of South Wales law grad who aspires to become what she believes is the first Romani woman to qualify as a barrister in England and Wales is hoping the generosity of others will help her achieve her career plan.
Unable to afford the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) registration fee, Brigitta Balogh has launched a crowdfunding appeal in the hope of raising the £1,800 required to secure her place at City, University of London. According to Balogh’s GoFundMe page, she has already been “granted government funding” but is still “short with the registration fee”.
Balogh’s online appeal appears to be her final throw of the dice. She has already reached out to family and friends, who have helped as much as they could, and contacted a number of organisations including her Inns of Court, who were unable to assist.
