Bar Council Annual Report 2016-17

Aim 1 - Other consultations

Let’s chat.

Other consultations

Further consultations to which the Bar Council contributed in 2016-17 include:

Civil litigation costs

In 2016-17 the Bar Council continued to engage with Lord Justice Jackson’s review of fixed recoverable costs. The Bar Council undertook two consultations of Specialist Bar Associations (SBAs) about the experiences of their members, and in January made a submission to the consultation.


In early 2017, the Bar Council responded to the Government’s ‘whiplash’ consultation and urged the Government not to increase the small claims limit.
