St Philips Chambers is delighted to announce that Iqbal Mohammed, a member of our Business & Property Group, has been appointed to serve a 3-year term as a governor of the Birmingham Metropolitan College corporation; Birmingham’s largest Further Education provider with 10 campuses across the city. Birmingham Metropolitan College includes the landmark Matthew Bolton College campus and Sutton Coldfield College.
Iqbal’s appointment is the latest example of St Philips Chambers’ enduring commitment to local education, access to the bar and the city of Birmingham. Every year since 2011, St Philips has hosted the Bar Council’s “How to get to the Bar” annual legal conference, in partnership with Aston University to promote the bar to A-Level students who have an interest in law. In addition, several members of chambers volunteer as governors for local schools.
