The Bar Council of England and Wales has announced the formation ofï¿½a new advisory panel to help "maintain the Bar's reputation for excellence in legal advice and representation".
The Bar Quality Advisory Panel - BQAP - is a non-disciplinary body that will receive referrals about a member of the Bar's performance from judges, instructing solicitors and barristers on the same legal team. The panel will then be able to advise the member of the Bar concerned about his or her work, and how to improve things for the future. More information>
