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.

We continue to campaign in this area including through the press, social media and other communications and parliamentary activity, as well as our participation in Justice Week. Examples of our work on these issues are below.

We are currently asking the Treasury to take forward our five recommendations to support the Bar and justice through the Covid-19 crisis. Find out how you can help us #MakeTheCase here.
