The Bar Standards Board (BSB) has published a report on the impact of their revised approach to regulating barristers’ Continuing Professional Development. The report found that the general attitude towards the scheme amongst barristers was positive, with many welcoming the improved flexibility of the rules, however the report also suggested that there was some misunderstanding over the role of reflection in maintaining professional standards.

The report focuses on the CPD approach launched in 2017, which emphasised outcomes for barristers with over three years of experience, replacing the prescriptive hours focused approach.
