Barrister | Entrepreneur
Mass is a Barrister at the Government Legal Department, as well as the Founder and Chairman of Bridging the Bar. In July 2020, Mass became the first ever Pupil Barrister to be awarded "Barrister of the Week" by The Lawyer Publication.
During pupillage, he spent a six-month secondment at Blackstone Chambers where he practised in Commercial Law, Public Law, Human Rights Law, Financial Regulatory Law, Employment Law and Sports Law. In the final week of pupillage Mass launched Bridging the Bar, a charity which supports aspiring barristers from statistically underrepresented groups.
From an early age, Mass did not believe that a career at the Bar was possible for him, largely because he did not fit the conventional image of a practising barrister. Recognising that his achievements in the law can inspire others, Mass has dedicated himself to opening the doors of opportunity for people from non-traditional backgrounds. He has written numerous articles on the topic of diversifying the legal profession and he is regularly booked to speak at events across the UK.
Mass maintains a strong interest in business, having previously run his own company. In the summer of 2019, Mass raised seed funding for a new business venture which is set to launch in 2020.
