The Bar Conference 2024 was held on Saturday 8 June in London, with Conference welcome drinks on Friday evening.

Bar Conference is an opportunity for all barristers to come together to learn, network, and engage with colleagues from across the profession. It's the only event that brings the whole Bar together with a unique programme of expert speakers debating the big issues and providing practical advice for career development.

Bar Conference 2024
  • High-profile keynote speakers, including the Lady Chief Justice, the Chair of the Bar and the Chair of the Young Barristers' Committee.
  • Insightful sessions exploring the future of international courts and the role of artificial intelligence in the justice system.
  • Breakout options, from career development sessions on earnings and diversifying your practice, to hot topics, such as reforming private prosecutions, ethical dilemmas, and navigating inter-generational differences.
  • A range of organisations that support the Bar in our exhibition.
  • Network with colleagues you know and make new connections.
