As an effective campaigning voice, Counsel covers the key issues facing the Bar and the legal system in addition to profiles, conference reports, personal finance, chambers' announcements and more.

A distinguished editorial board, mainly drawn from the ranks of practising barristers, works closely with the editorial team to produce a vibrant monthly magazine. It is made up of barristers representing a wide cross-section of the Bar and is not part of the Bar Council's committee structure.

Counsel is published 12 times per year by LexisNexis on behalf of the Bar Council. A print subscription to Counsel is available to Bar Representation Fee payers, at no extra cost. Take at look at the archive to see past editions.
