BSB seeks up to two new barrister Board members

24 September 2018

The Bar Standards Board (BSB) has begun the process to recruit up to two new barrister Board members.

The successful applicants will work with others on the Board to govern and oversee the regulator's work.

The Board seeks members with a wide variety of practice experience, but it would particularly welcome applications from barristers practising at the Criminal Bar, the Family Bar, the Young Bar and from those practising outside London or the south-east, who would complement the skills and experience of its current Board members.

The closing date for applications for the position is 9am on Monday 22 October 2018. Interviews will be held in central London on the morning of Monday 19 November.

More information about the vacancies and the application process can be found on the BSB website.
