BSB Presentation on reporting concerns -Birmingham, Tuesday 11 June,  5.30pm

The Bar Standards Board (BSB) is committed to ensuring that reporting of misconduct by barristers, including bullying and harassment within the Bar, is taken seriously. We want to ensure that anyone who wishes to report a concern feels comfortable about doing so, understands what will happen after they have made a report and can be confident that appropriately trained BSB staff will handle such reports sensitively and efficiently.

To inform the Bar about our approach to handling the concerns reported to us, we are organising a series of outreach presentations to provide information on how to report such incidences to us and what steps we will take after receiving a report, including taking disciplinary action. We plan to hold presentations in each circuit across England and Wales over the next year. Sessions will feature a presentation delivered by our staff who deal with reports of concerns about barristers and an opportunity to ask questions.

We invite you to join us for our next event taking place in the Midland Circuit on Tuesday 11 June, at 5.30pm at St Philips Chambers (55 Temple Row, Birmingham B2 5LS).

The presentation with a Q&A session will last approximately 90 minutes. Sandwiches and beverages will be kindly provided by St Philips Chambers.  

All barristers, clerks and administrative staff working within the Bar are welcome to attend, however we are particularly encouraging those who are junior members of the Bar to come along.

This session will be hybrid, but we do encourage you to attend in person, if possible. Details on the forthcoming roundtables will be published in due course.

Spaces are limited and we encourage you to reserve your place promptly by completing the registration form or emailing [email protected].
