International missions and events

The Bar Council organises a number of bespoke international missions and events, both at home and abroad. These include business development missions overseas, conferences on English and Welsh law, and various domestic and international events such as seminars, roundtables, and the hosting of incoming delegations of overseas lawyers.

These events are designed to promote the Bar in selected jurisdictions, and to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and the development of legal links and legal business overseas.

Overseas missions and conferences are open to barristers who subscribe to the Bar Representation Fee.
