Integrity. Excellence. Justice.
The Bar Council has welcomed the Ministry of Justice's revised plans for criminal advocacy including deferring implementation of any cuts in the Advocates Graduated Fee Scheme (AGFS) for at least a year.
This year's Bar Conference is celebrating the excellence that is the Bar. The Conference provides an unrivalled opportunity to learn, network and discuss the key issues affecting today's Bar.
The Bar Council has published ' The Bar in society - Barristers making a difference', which outlines the valuable contribution many barristers make to the communities they work and live in, and the Corporate Social Responsibility of the Bar Council.
