Bar Council Annual Report 2016-17

Aim 5 - Women at the Bar

Let’s chat.

Women at the Bar

In addition to seminars, retention and progression mentoring, and policy work on parental leave, in 2016-17, the Bar Council also:

  • Hosted the Association of Women Barristers’ annual pupillage clinic, to support aspiring barristers with their pupillage applications, and
  • Produced a short film for International Women’s Day featuring female juniors and silks calling on women at the Bar to reflect on how they had been supported by others. Women were encouraged to #payitforward by persuading talented colleagues to take the next step in their careers, be that branching in to a new practice area or applying for silk or judicial appointment.
