The Bar Council campaigns for a properly funded and functioning system of justice, putting the case to Government for investment in the system, speaking to the public and highlighting gaps in access to justice in the public interest.

Over the course of 2020, we will continue to campaign in this area including through our participation in Justice Week. Examples of our previous work on these issues are below.
