Governance Framework


On 19 September 2019, the Bar Council approved a Governance Framework for the Bar.

The framework is intended to be a central reference document and repository of information for Bar Councillors, staff and all interested members of the Bar. It brings together the Bar’s key governance documents, and describes the roles and responsibilities within the Bar’s organisational structure and the fundamental principles and mechanisms we have in place to ensure effective governance, continual performance improvement, and meeting of corporate obligations and legal requirements.
