Published: 4th June 2024

As part of our continued approach to tailored expansion of our membership, we are delighted to announce that The Bar Standards Board (BSB) are joining UKRN with immediate effect.

Mark Neale, BSB Director General says;

We are pleased to join the UKRN. The Bar Standards Board is an independent regulator of 18,000 practising barristers, pupils, unregistered barristers, certain specialised legal services businesses (known as BSB entities) and European lawyers registered with us. It is important to us that we learn and improve continuously to serve in the best interest of the public. We are looking forward to learning from other regulators through this network, to share best practice and collaborate with them where possible.”

Attricia Archer, UKRN Director says;

”I am very pleased that The Bar Standards Board are joining UKRN. To be joined by another  high profile regulator from the legal sector, really helps to underpin the importance of the sector to UKRN. We are looking forward to the BSB engaging and fully contributing to a number of our professional networks”.
