BSB publishes Professional Statement for Barristers

On 21 September, we published a revised version of the Professional Statement, which now includes the Threshold Standard and Competences. It sets out in more detail the skills, knowledge and attributes which barristers are expected to have on "day one" of being issued with a practising certificate.

The Professional Statement is an important component of our Future Bar Training programme of reforms to education and training for the Bar.

We are hosting a series of forums on the forthcoming consultation on Future Bar Training later in the year.
