Response to BSB consultation

The Young Legal Aid Lawyers response to the Bar Standards Board Consultation on the Future of Training for the Bar: Academic, Vocational and Professional Stages of Training is available to download below.

As part of our response, as well as responding to the questions posed by the consultation paper, we invited the Bar Standards Board (BSB) to attend a focus group of YLAL members who are practising or aspiring barristers. We believe that such a focus group would allow the BSB to properly engage with the views of GDL and BPTC students, pupils and junior barristers at the publicly funded Bar.
