Let’s chat.


Annual Bar and Young Bar Conference

The 2016 Annual Bar and Young Bar Conference focused on opportunities in international markets to highlight how global growth can be used to the advantage of the English and Welsh Bar.

Combining both the Young Bar and the Bar conferences in a single day, this event is the platform that brings together all members of the Bar community to learn, network and share ideas in order to ensure continued development and success at the Bar. 

For 2016, the Bar Council developed an event app to allow delegates to network by exchanging contact details, download the event programme, register their CPD for sessions, and be notified of conference updates.

For the second year running, discounts were offered to members from outside the South Eastern Circuit, resulting in 12 per cent more barristers attending from areas other than London.

A discount was also available for employed barristers who cannot reclaim VAT, increasing attendance from this group by 9 per cent.
