Aim 2 - Providing leadership and support to barristers

The Bar Council provides leadership to the whole Bar and a valuable and valued set of services for individual barristers. We need to ensure that the benefits of these services are widely known and that we develop existing and new services in response to the challenges facing the barristers of tomorrow.

  • We will listen to the Bar, through effective direct communication and consultation and at conferences and other events, and develop our services in response to an even clearer understanding of what barristers need and want

  • We will seek to ensure a sustainable basis for these services while keeping the requirement for central funding to a minimum, and

  • We will communicate effectively the work of the Bar Council and the value it adds to the profession and the public.
