Annual Bar and Young Bar Conference 2022:

Future-proofing the Bar

This year’s Annual Bar and Young Bar Conference will take place across four days of online and in-person sessions, under the theme of ‘Future-proofing the Bar’. The conference will explore the deep-rooted issues that underpin our justice system and their impact on providers of legal services, and consider how members of the Bar can work individually and collectively to shape the future of the profession.

Our expert speakers will examine how we can strengthen the Bar and ensure that our members’ unique excellence in advocacy and specialist advisory services continues to be recognised nationally and internationally, and that the profession is perceived as being sustainable, resilient and diverse.
