The president annually reviews the need for the Bar Association’s various committees, the role of those committees and their membership.
A form listing the 2016-2017 committees is available here.
Members (not just those holding a practising certificate) who wish to be considered for appointment to a committee on the attached list should complete the form showing the committees for which they wish to be considered.
Existing members of committees who wish to continue on a particular committee should also complete the form.
Expressions of interest will close at 5pm on Thursday, 19 May 2016.
The Bar Association is very fortunate that we have many more volunteers for committees than can possibly be accommodated. The president has therefore asked that members restrict their choice of committees to no more than two.
In confirming committee membership, the president ensures that all parts of the New South Wales Bar – geographically, practice areas and seniority – are represented on each committee.
Please note that until new committees are established and promulgated, the existing committees continue unchanged. The existing appointments to various working parties and representatives for the Bar Association continue unless and until the president determines otherwise.
Acknowledgement of your expression of interest will be emailed to you within 24 hours. If you do not receive an acknowledgement please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone Georgina Stow on 9232 4055.
