Turnover of the Family Bar has been static for three years

Work of the Family Bar report published on behalf of the FLBA

The overall turnover of the Family Bar has remained static for the last three years. This is just one of the many findings revealed in a report published on 9 March called The Work of the Family Bar.

The Report is the result of a research project commissioned by the FLBA and carried out by the King’s Institute for the Study of Public Policy. The research involved a significant number of barristers and their clerks and data was gathered through surveys of (i) chambers where any family work is undertaken, (ii) barristers who undertook any family work (whether publicly funded or privately paid) in the year to 30 August 2008 and (iii) all family work completed by barristers in England and Wales in a random week. This was known as the ‘Week-At-A-Glance’.

Some of the other key findings are as follows:

You can also see additional comment about the report by Lucy Reed on her blog, Pink Tape, and on the Family Law Week blog on a meeting of family barristers to discuss its findings.
