The Bar of England and Wales is very internationally orientated. A significant proportion of its members have an international practice and that number is increasing all the time.

The International Committee and team organise numerous activities throughout the year to help members of the Bar develop their international practices.To see a list of the International Committee's activities for 2018 please click here.
