What is happening at the Bar? A myth-busting talk by the Director General of the Bar Standards Board

Next Tuesday (10 March 2015), the Director of the Bar Standards Board, Dr Vanessa Davies, will give a talk entitled ‘What is happening at the Bar? A myth-busting talk by the Director General of the Bar Standards Board, the regulatory body for barristers in England and Wales’.

Dr Davies has been Director General of the Bar Standards Board since December 2010. She joined the BSB following her work as the Director of Operations at Refugee and Migrant Justice (RMJ). RMJ was previously one of the largest legal aid charities in the UK, supporting on an annual basis around 7,000 of the most vulnerable clients. She was responsible for professional training, standards and compliance for accredited paralegals and caseworkers, as well for as solicitors and barristers. Before that, she spent nearly a decade working with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

This is a fantastic event for students interested in a career as a barrister, or wishing to learn more about the Bar.
