The Incorporated Council of Law Reporting for England and Wales (ICLR) – Bar Council Representative

Term: 4 year term

The Bar Council is looking to nominate a barrister representative for the Incorporated Council of Law Reporting (ICLR). 

About ICLR

ICLR, a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee, was formed in 1865.  Its main objective is:

‘The preparation and publication, in a convenient form, at a moderate price, and under gratuitous professional control, of Reports of Judicial Decisions of the Superior and Appellate Courts in England.’

The ICLR publishes The Law Reports, the Weekly Law Reports, the Industrial Cases Reports and the Consolidated Index in print and online, and the Business Law Reports and the Public and Third Sector Law Reports online.

The Council is composed of two representatives each from Inner Temple, Middle Temple, Gray’s Inn, Lincoln’s Inn, The Law Society and the General Council of the Bar plus the President of The Law Society, the Attorney-General and the Solicitor-General ex officio, and up to five co-opted Members. 

About the role

The full Council meets once a year, at the July Annual General Meeting and Council Meeting which follows it.  An Executive Committee oversees the business of the Council, for which the Chief Executive Officer is responsible and supported by a Senior Management Team. 

The nominee would also be welcome to support the Council in other ways such as at ICLR events. 

For further information about the role, please contact the CEO, Kevin Laws, at Kevin.Laws@iclr.co.uk or on 020 7242 6471.

Knowledge and experience

The Council has a number of sub-Committees responsible for planning and strategy, investments and pensions. Whilst there are no specific skills, knowledge or background required for a Bar Council nominee, interest or expertise in these areas is particularly welcome. 

Applications will be presented to the General Management Committee of the Bar Council who are responsible for selecting the successful candidate based on merit.  The Bar Council is committed to ensuring fairness, transparency and openness in its recruitment processes.  In addition, consideration is given to matters of equality and diversity.

The successful candidate will commence in July 2022.  We are aiming to have the successful candidate in place for the ICLR’s Annual General Meeting on 20 July 2022 and would ask that applicants bear this date in mind.
