Best Practice Guidelines

The New South Wales Bar Association considers that achieving best practice in professional conduct and compliance with New South Wales and Commonwealth laws in the area of equality and diversity should be encouraged among its members and their chambers/floors. To this end, on 19 June 2014 the Bar Council approved the following Best Practice Guidelines (BPG). Best Practice Guidelines are voluntary, however, the Bar Association encourages its members and their chambers/floors to adopt them.
