FOCUS OF THE DAY: The number of barristers who have been authorised to conduct litigation is gradually increasing although this is still lower than expected, the Bar Standards Board has said in its annual report. Since the BSB first permitted barristers to conduct litigation in January 2014, 214 barristers have been authorised. By November last year, the figure was 129. The board noted that the Bar Council is continuing to promote the new litigation rules amongst the profession. Full story - The Law Society Gazette
