The Bar Council recognises the challenges barristers face when returning to practice after having had a family. In light of this, the Bar Mentoring Service has created the Maternity Mentoring Scheme. 

The Maternity Mentoring Scheme is an opportunity for barristers to have access to advice, guidance and information from a more experienced parent who has been through the whole process, and has returned to a flourishing practice. It is hoped that this scheme will prove invaluable to barristers who are either contemplating a career break, are currently on parental leave, or are returning to practice.

Although the name might suggest otherwise, Maternity Mentoring is available to all parents/carers at the Bar, irrespective of gender, and we would welcome and encourage all applications.
