Barrister | Social Entrepreneur | Public Speaker
Mass is an award-winning Barrister practising at 7 Bedford Row Chambers, and the Founder and Chairperson of Bridging the Bar. Within his legal practice, Mass has a multi-disciplinary practice and accepts instructions across a range of different practice areas.
Mass' work has been recognised in a number of prominent legal and non-legal spaces. In July 2020, Mass became the first ever Pupil Barrister to be awarded 'Barrister of the Week' by The Lawyer Magazine. In January 2021, Mass was recognised as Advocate’s 'Pro-bono Hero of the Month'. In November 2021, Mass picked up two awards after he was declared the winner of the Middle Temple Young Barristers Association (MTYBA) Rule of Law Essay Competition and commended as a Future Leader at the 2021 Chambers and Partners Awards. In January 2022, Mass was listed amongst the 'Hot 100' Lawyers across the UK and in November 2022 he was the recipient of the 'Diversity and Inclusion: Future Leader' award at the 2022 Chambers and Partners Awards.
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.
Mass has written numerous articles on the topic of diversifying the legal profession. He has also delivered keynote speeches within various academic and legal spaces. Mass has spoken to audiences in the UK Supreme Court, the Inns of Court and various universities.
