Annual Bar and Young Bar Conference 2021:
Recovery, growth and transformation
This year’s annual conference will take place across four days of online and in-person sessions examining what is needed to overcome the challenges restricting the delivery of justice, which has been exacerbated by the pandemic over the last two years.
We will look at the transformations that are needed or expected to take place throughout the justice system and within the profession, including the role of technology, access to the Bar, working practices and barristers’ individual and collective business development and management.
Join us and colleagues from across the Bar this November at the Annual Bar and Young Bar Conference 2021.
