Bar Council holds open meeting about Brexit on the 13th July

Following the decision of the United Kingdom electorate to leave the European Union, the Bar Council has established a Brexit working group, chaired by Hugh Mercer QC.

The working group will initially consider the possible implications for the profession of leaving the European Union and is holding a meeting this Wednesday, 13th July, for barristers to highlight their concerns with the group.  

Wednesday’s meeting will take the form of an information gathering session and the working group will use the concerns raised to produce ongoing information and guidance for the profession. This advice will be made available on the Bar Council website so that members of the profession throughout England and Wales can access it irrespective of location, and the guidance will be updated on a rolling basis. 

The meeting will be held at Serle Court, 6 New Square, Lincoln's Inn, London, from 17:30 on Wednesday 13 July. 

The Bar Council is inviting any barrister to attend if they have questions or concerns that they wish to raise with the working group and help influence its priorities.
