Supporting compliance and development within chambers

The Bar Council's Annual Chambers Management Package has been specifically designed to assist chambers in meeting their responsibilities under the Bar Standards Board Handbook, and in supporting the day-to-day functionalities of their management committees and support staff.

At its heart, the Package offers you a wide-range of training programmes and compliance-focused seminars to choose from throughout the year, ensuring that your set maintains its professional standards and acts as beacon of good practice.
