The work of the Bar Standards Board is carried out by:
Our Board is made up of 15 people, a combination of lay people
and barristers. The Board has had a lay majority since January
We have five committees each of which reports to the Board
We have over eighty members of staff who work hard to support
the work of the Board and its Committees
The BSB's lay Independent Observer provides independent
assurance that the BSB's enforcement system is operating in line
with its aims and objectives.
