The Bar Tribunals and Adjudication Service (BTAS) seeks barristers, lay representatives and QCs to act as Panel Members of Disciplinary Tribunals and other hearings for barristers.
Members of the Pool will also consider the conduct of aspiring barristers to determine whether they are ‘fit and proper’ persons for a career at the Bar.
The BTAS is also looking for barristers to serve as Clerks to the Tribunals, supporting the delivery of fair and independent hearings that ensure both public and professional interests are properly served.
Hearings take place in central London, and all roles are eligible to receive attendance fees and reasonable expenses.
The Bar Tribunals and Adjudication Service is a constituent part of the Council of the Inns of Court (COIC), a charity which exists to advance education in the sound administration of the law, including by promoting high standards of advocacy and enforcing professional standards of conduct. Responsibility for the recruitment and selection of new Members and Clerks to join the Pool has been delegated by COIC to an independent and stand-alone Committee, known as the Tribunal Appointments Body (TAB).
If you believe you have the motivation, experience and skills to join the BTAS Disciplinary Pool, please apply via the BTAS Recruitment Website.
The closing date for applications is Monday 11th March.
