Authorisation to Practise to open later this month

The Annual Authorisation to Practise (AtP) process for you to renew your practising certificates is due to open later this month. You will have until the end of March to complete this.

Your practising certificate renewal must be completed via the new MyBar portal which will launch when AtP opens. The new portal is a joint development between the BSB and the Bar Council. It is designed to make the process easier and more efficient.

This year, there are a number of new pieces of information that you will be required to provide when completing AtP. These come about as a result of the new rules added to the latest version of the BSB Handbook. More information about the new rules and the new disclosure requirements are provided in the article below.
