Founded in 1985, COUNSEL is the official monthly Magazine of the Bar of England and Wales, published by LexisNexis on behalf of the Bar Council. COUNSEL is largely written by and for barristers.
Highly influential and thought-provoking, it is read by legal professionals of all ages, from law students to senior judges, policy makers, key influencers, and members of the government. It also has a wider general readership.
Editorial coverage ranges from high profile interviews to its vital Practice Toolset section, helping barristers achieve their ambitions and work smarter using the latest techniques and market innovations.
It is also the platform for intelligent opinion on key issues affecting the Bar and justice, as well as covering wellbeing and lifestyle matters, giving it a broad cross-over appeal for anyone associated with the legal industry and interested in the law.
Our authors are thought leaders and experts in their fields. Our audience is highly engaged with the COUNSEL brand in print, online and social media.
The magazine has a distinguished Policy and Editorial Board, mainly drawn from the ranks of practising barristers and representing a wide cross-section of the Bar.
Print issues go direct to subscribers each month, with high numbers of non-subscribers reading it on the ‘free to view’ destination website: www.counselmagazine.co.uk.
