The director general of the Bar Standards Board (BSB), Mark Neale, has encouraged practice managers to work alongside the BSB to promote standards, equality and access at the Bar.
In a speech to the Legal Practice Management Association, Neale set out the BSB’s strategy for the next three years and stressed the vital role of chambers in:
- promoting high standards – by acting as the conduits for feedback to barristers on their performance;
- ensuring equality and inclusion – particularly in the areas of recruitment, work allocation and career progression;
- countering bullying and harassment; and
- in facilitating access for consumers – by improving consumers’ understanding of the services barristers can provide and of the price and quality of those services.You'll need to subscribe to unlock this content. Already subscribed?
