Amend your profile on Find a Barrister
Members are reminded of the value in periodically reviewing and updating their personal profile on Find-a-Barrister. You may indicate if you are willing to accept briefs direct from corporate counsel, update your photo, list your own website or LinkedIn page, add to your areas of practice and upload an up-to-date CV.
Members can nominate up to seven principal areas of practice that are recognised by the Bar Council, as well as an unlimited number of sub-categories under each primary area. This system provides more specific guidance for solicitors and others who use the facility to find those barristers most appropriate to their particular circumstances.
Visit www.nswbar.asn.au and click on Sign in on the top right hand corner of the home page.
Enter your username and password. If you are unaware of either or both details, click on Unknown username or password? and follow the prompts.
If your sign in is successful, you will be deposited on the Member Dashboard. Click on Personal information and make changes as desired.
Remember, clicking on a broad area of practice automatically selects every sub-category. It is up to you to "un-select" the narrower practice areas that do not relate to you. It is advisable to keep the selection of the broad area of practice in order for a more general search to locate you. For example: If you select Common law / personal injury, but do not do appellate or professional negligence matters, then unselect those two sub-categories, while being sure to retain Common law / personal injury.
When you have finished your practice area selection, log out of the member dashboard.
The changes will be updated on Find a Barrister, usually overnight. If this does not happen, contact the Bar Association on ph: (02) 9232 4055 for further assistance.
