The Bar Council’s Snapshot Report: The Experience of Employed Barristers at the Bar gave insight into the working lives of those at the Employed Bar.

The report identified that many employed barristers wished for greater recognition of their achievements, which sparked the initiative for the Employed Bar Awards.

The Bar Council represents the whole Bar. You might say that this is our USP. This 2016 Snapshot survey and report of the experience of employed barristers at the Bar forms an important part of the work we do to ensure that we understand the needs of the different strands that make up the One Bar. Our aim at the Bar Council is to ensure that we engage with all members of the profession and, equally importantly, that we are able to benefit from the engagement of the cross-section of the Bar with us.
