The Young Bar Toolkit has been written by members of the Bar Council’s Young Barristers’ Committee, with input from solicitors, fellow barristers, pupil supervisors and clerks, and from Bar Council staff. It is designed for barristers, including pupils, in the early years of practice.
The Toolkit features five sections, with relevant sub-sections:
- Building and managing a practice: The self-employed Bar
- Financial affairs, accounting and tax for the self-employed Bar
- The employed Bar
- Wellbeing and work/life balance
- Pupillage and how to get it
