The Bar of England and Wales is admired throughout the world for its excellent, strong traditions of public service and representation for all.  The Bar Standards Board (BSB), as the regulator of barristers, has a duty to protect the public and safeguard clients and the standards of the profession.  Facing significant change brought about by the introduction of Alternative Business Structures, as well as challenges thrown up by legal aid reform and the re-shaping of the market for barristers' services (especially at the criminal bar), Board Members will contribute to the leadership of the BSB at a critical time in the Bar's history.
The BSB seeks to appoint two lay and two barrister members to the Board.  Are you interested in the justice system?  Do you have the ability to analyse and reach decisions on complex and sensitive issues that will have a long-term effect on the Bar?  Can you work as part of a congenial but intellectually rigorous team?  Can you carry credibility with both the public and the profession?  If you have answered yes to these questions, then we would like to hear from you.
The Board remains open minded as to the background experience of lay and barrister board member candidates. However, of particular interest are senior level skills in consumer affairs, information technology, professional education, the publicly funded Bar, family law and immigration.
