BSB final report: pilot scheme to monitor Chambers

The Bar Standards Board Published its final report on a pilot scheme to monitor Chambers’ compliance with the Code of Conduct.

The pilot scheme ran from June until November 2008 and involved a representative sample of 35 sets of Chambers. The sample was selected to achieve a fair representation of Chambers across England and Wales and took into consideration size of Chambers, practice and area and geographical location. The pilot scheme focused on the following areas:

  • Chambers complaints handling
  • Equality and diversity
  • Pupillage

The pilot scheme involved the gathering of information and evidence from each of the 35 sets of Chambers. Following evaluation of the information provided, 15 Chambers were selected for visit. More information can be found on our website at:
