Revised Future Bar Training consultation including the COIC/ Bar Council proposal

On 3 October, we issued a consultation document outlining three possible approaches towards the future of Bar training.

Following a request from the Council of the Inns of Court (COIC) and the Bar Council, we have now added to our consultation document and extended the deadline for consultation until 31 January 2017 so that you can have the opportunity to study and comment on a specific proposal which has been published by COIC with the support of the Bar Council.

Please evaluate the new proposal against the questions set out in the consultation document and the principles of:

  • flexibility;
  • accessibility;
  • affordability; and
  • sustaining high standards

which were set out in the consultation.

You can read the consultation and the COIC/Bar Council proposal on our website.

We have extended the deadline for responses until 5pm Tuesday, 31 January 2017.
