BSB calls for entity regulation focus group participants

The Bar Standards Board is holding a series of focus groups next week and we would like to hear expressions of interest from Barristers, Practice Managers and Clerks. The purpose of the focus group is to hear thoughts on entity based regulation. We will ask participants to discuss their motivations for setting up an entity, how soon they would like to establish an entity and the type of structures they are considering, as well as how the BSB can best support them.

This event will provide refreshments and tea/coffee and will offer an opportunity to network and share views on entity regulation.

Date and time

Four focus groups will be held on the following dates and times:

  • Monday 3 March between 12.00pm and 2.00pm for a lunch time session at the Bar Standards Board office in central London,  289-293 High Holborn, London WC1V 7HZ. Directions are available on the BSB website.

 

  • Thursday 6 March between 8.30am and 10.00am for a breakfast session at the Bar Standards Board office in central London,  289-293 High Holborn, London WC1V 7HZ. Directions are available on the BSB website.
