Shaping the Bar of the future
As we celebrated 100 years of women in law, we considered how we want to shape the Bar for the next 100 years. This means breaking down barriers and obstacles that prevent women, those with disabilities, Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic and LGBT+ barristers from progressing and building thriving practices.
Our Accelerator Programme is aimed at speeding up progress to modernise the Bar and includes initiatives like:
- The Bar Council Leadership Programme
- Mentoring and sponsorship initiatives
- Best practice guides
- Supporting the young Bar
- Tackling discrimination, bullying, harassment and inappropriate behaviours
