The new Taskforce is part of the BSB’s work to ensure that the Bar is inclusive, reflects wider society, harnesses talent and is strengthened by diverse living experiences. The panel was co-chaired by Mark Neale, Director-General at the BSB and Diane Lightfoot, Chief Executive at the Business Disability Forum.

Some barristers have the ability to “conduct litigation” for direct access clients. Our clerks will be able to assist you as to which of our members are trained and accredited to do so.
