Bar Standards Board

Expert advisers needed

The BSB regulates barristers and specialised legal services businesses in England and Wales in the public interest. We are responsible for setting education and training requirements, establishing and maintain professional standards, authorising organisations, and dealing with questions of professional misconduct.

We use APEX (our Advisory Pool of Experts) for expert advice and support as we develop policy and make regulatory decisions. We have already engaged a range of people, and now want to make new appointments - including legal practitioners. APEX offers a flexible way of contributing to important and interesting topics in BSB policy development at an early stage. We will recognise your input publicly and show your details on our website. You will be paid for your time. You will become part of a group of experts from a range of different specialisms, with regular opportunities to come together and learn.

Vacancies are open until Monday 12 March. We are seeking an expert legal practitioner in the field of Information Law and Data Protection. We are also seeking experts to advise us on our new CPD scheme, and on Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Regulations, who could also be legal practitioners. Check our website for further details.

We aim to recruit talented candidates and value diversity in background, skills and experience. We are committed to providing equality of opportunity for all applicants.
