Training and events team

Led by the Director of Services, the Bar Council Training and Events team is responsible for the delivery of an ever-growing portfolio.

The team works closely with chambers throughout England and Wales to deliver highly personalised in-house training to members of the profession and their employees. We’re working hard to ensure that the Bar Council isn’t seen as ‘London-centric’ and, to that end, the team has recently introduced online training, live-streaming and the cost-effective Annual Chambers Management Package to the training portfolio. 

In order to deliver training and events which are relevant to our members and key stakeholders, we work collaboratively with the Bar Council Policy Team and lead the organisation in the production of the its two flagship events: the Pupillage Fair and the Annual Bar and Young Bar Conference.
