Recruitment of Lay Members of the Bar Standards Board

We are now recruiting lay Members to join our Board. The new members will provide visible leadership of the BSB at a critical time in the Bar's history.

The Board is made up of 15 people, eight of whom are not barristers; a lay majority.

The new members will be appointed by an Independent Appointments Panel for a three year fixed term, starting 1 January 2016. This can be renewed once for up to a further three years.

The closing date for applications is Friday 19 August 2016.

Candidates who wish to make an application should contact Max McGrath of Odgers Berndtson for information in the first instance on either 0207 367 9757 or Max.McGrath@odgersberndtson.com.

Only candidates considered to be lay are eligible to apply. Practising barristers and solicitors or any authorised person in relation to an activity that is a reserved legal activity are ineligible.
