The Ethical Enquiries Service

The Bar Council provides a confidential  Ethical Enquiries Service to help barristers (and, where appropriate, their clerks and other staff connected with barristers' professional practices) to identify, interpret and comply with their professional obligations under the BSB Handbook.

Call the Ethical Enquiries line on 020 7611 1307. Lines are open 09:15-17:15 Monday-Friday.

You will receive a response to your email within four working days.

Please note: this service does not give legal advice, and we encourage (where possible) members of the Bar to talk ethical issues through with peers and senior practitioners before using the service.
