New BSB Handbook to come into force in January 2014

From 6 January 2014 the Bar should refer to a new Handbook for rules and guidance on their conduct as barristers.


The revised Code now forms Part two of the new BSB Handbook, which brings together all the BSB’s regulations and guidance for barristers into one publication.

To help the Bar get to grips with the new Handbook, a new electronic version will be available to download from www.barstandardsboard.org.uk/handbook in autumn 2013.

In November, the BSB will be hosting a series of ‘roadshows’ across the country for barristers who would like to learn more about the new Handbook and what it means for them in practice.

The dates are:

4 Nov 2013: Birmingham;
5/7/14 Nov 2013: London;
11 Nov 2013: Nottingham;
18 Nov 2013: Newcastle;
20 Nov 2013: Exeter;
26 Nov 2013: Manchester;
27 Nov 2013: Liverpool;
28 Nov 2013: Leeds.
