Committee members wanted at the BSB

We are seeking new members for two of our Committees.

We need:

  • Barrister members for the Professional Conduct Committee; and
  • Barrister members for the Qualifications Committee.

We would welcome barristers from any practice area, with expertise in crime, family and equality and diversity areas of practice particularly welcome.

The organisation

As the independent regulator for barristers in England and Wales, we are responsible for setting the education, training and conduct requirements for being a barrister; handling complaints and disciplinary matters and assuring the quality of the profession.

We are going through a period of change, having recently reviewed our governance arrangements in relation to many of its committees. The Professional Conduct and Qualifications Committees are also under review, which may result in changes to how the committees operate.  Appointments will therefore be for an initial period of up to two years.

Meetings will take place in London, but some UK travel may be necessary.

For more information and to apply please visit the About Us section of our website www.barstandards.board.org.uk. Candidates are required to apply online; however, if you have a disability or for any other good reason are seeking a reasonable adjustment to the recruitment process, please contact us to make arrangements.  Closing date for applications: 9am Monday 11 January 2016.
