Barristers in the International Legal Market brochure


The Bar Council's International Committee invites you to promote your members' expertise in our international publication: Barristers in the international legal market (8th edition). This publication has enjoyed increasing support from the profession, with 51 chambers participating in last year's brochure. It is distributed at numerous international events organised by or attended by the Bar Council.

This publication describes the full range of services the Bar provides to international clients. We are confident that it appeals to chambers in all practice areas. For last year's brochure, please click here.

The brochure contains an editorial explaining how international clients can work with the Bar, the advantages of doing so and an advertising section. We are offering all chambers half a page of advertising space at the cost of £350 plus VAT per advert. (We have frozen this price for the last six years!) You are free to use the half page space as you wish so you can, for example place a short advert, list your specialisms, etc.

If you book an advert in the brochure by 17:00 on Friday 11 August 2017 you will receive a 10% early bird discount. The final deadline for booking adverts is Friday 25 August 2017. Please note that you must submit your final advert as per the attached specifications no later than Friday 1 September 2017.

This year the new brochures will be launched at the Opening of the Legal Year and will be on display and distributed at, amongst others, the following events:

  • International Bar Association Annual Conference in Sydney, Australia (8-13 October) (attended by over 7,000 lawyers);

  • English Law Week 2017 in Moscow and St Petersburg organised by the Bar Council and Law Society. We anticipate at least 150 Russian lawyers and solicitors to attend (20-23 November 2017);

  • Bar Council business development missions to Kazakhstan and Colombia; 

  • Bilateral events with foreign bar associations (such as the German Bar Association (DAV));

  • Events for groups of foreign lawyers taking part in Bar Council exchange programmes, including groups of Brazilian and Chinese lawyers in spring 2018.

  • Legal visits throughout the year hosted or undertaken by the Bar Council and/or the Chair of the Bar. 

In addition, the publication will be distributed to many lawyers visiting the Bar Council throughout the year and will be featured on the Bar Council website. Each participating chambers will receive 10 hard copies (and more can be ordered while stocks last).
