As in previous years the Chair and Chair-Elect of the Bar are representing the Bar at the annual party conferences of the two main political parties - Labour (in Liverpool) and Conservatives (in Birmingham).

Andrew Walker QC and Richard Atkins QC will be: 

  • meeting key party members with an interest in justice

  • speaking at a series of fringe meetings and events organised by JUSTICE, Liberty, the Society of Labour Lawyers,  and the Society of Conservative Lawyers (amongst others). 

The focus of our representations this year is on making the case for improved spending on the justice system. You can access the Bar Council's 2018 Party Conference Briefing here.
