Wellbeing at the Bar Report

11 May 2015

The Wellbeing at the Bar Programme was developed to look in greater detail at the unique aspects of a barristers' working environment and how this impacts on psychological health and wellbeing. The programme, chaired by Rachel Spearing, aims to encourage discussion on the topic and shift attitudes towards wellbeing, which is a subject rarely spoken about within the legal profession.

In October 2014, the Bar Council conducted a survey to assess members' health and wellbeing and to identify risk factors which may impact on their performance.

The results have been analysed by an independent third party, Positive Group, and are available at the link below.
