Future Bar Training: Next Steps event – watch the footage

We are taking forward our current reform plan for Bar training - as set out in the  Policy Statement which we published in March 2017. As part of the programme, on Monday 19 June we hosted a 'Future Bar Training: Next steps' event.

With more than 80 delegates, our audience was extended via a livestream through our  Facebook page, which is still available to view.

The event contained a series of talks and discussions with members of the Bar, legal academics and representatives from the training sector whom explored the different elements of training we are reforming. View the presentations from the event.
