Webinar on new Equality and Diversity Rules

The Bar Standards Board will be hosting a webinar on the new Equality and Diversity Rules of the Code of Conduct in mid-July – more information is available on our website: www.barstandardsboard.org.uk.

The new E&D rules, due to come into force in September 2012, follow a consultation last year which highlighted the need for mandatory provisions in the Code aimed at promoting equality, including rules covering areas such as parental leave, recruitment and monitoring.
