Integrity. Excellence. Justice.
For less than £8.34 a month, you can support the Bar Council's vital work in representing the Bar's interests and promoting fair access to justice through the Bar Representation Fee (BRF)
Barristers in their early years of practice will be further supported through the development of a new toolkit and online hub, both of which address some of the key issues relevant to the Young Bar.
The Direct Access Portal, which acts as an online register, is the main hub for consumers, businesses and other organisations seeking to find a direct access barrister. The aim of the new website is to help drive more business to barristers.
The Bar Council has teamed up with the Inns of Court and Institute of Barristers' Clerks (IBC) to launch the Wellbeing at the Bar Portal www.wellbeingatthebar.co.uk - a website to specifically provide support and best practice to barristers, clerks and chambers on wellbeing and mental health issues.
