BSB welcomes report on vulnerable witness handling

The BSB has welcomed the Advocacy Training Council’s comprehensive report on the handling of vulnerable witnesses in the court system and commends the substantial amount of work that has gone into it.

We agree that barristers must be well equipped to deal with all witnesses, victims and defendants and are thankful for the opportunity to look at the treatment of vulnerable witnesses in particular. We will be studying the report’s recommendations in detail and look forward to working with the Advocacy Training Council and others to respond to its findings.
