Bar Associations

Specialist expertise. A collective voice. 

The Bar Associations bring together groups of barristers based on specialisations and areas of practice.

Members share resources and knowledge, discuss latest cases and issues affecting their areas of legal practice and together lobby for legal reform.

While the Vic Bar supports the Associations and their activities, the Bar Associations have an independent voice.
